Traveling Tumbleweeds presented in partnership with the Utah Film Center
It is Paris in 1910. The streets are flooded, and there's a monster on the loose! But the creature that strikes fear into the heart of Parisians is actually Francoeur, a gentle and musically gifted giant flea who, disguised as human, shares the stage with Lucille, the star of the Red Bird Cabaret. With the scheming Police Commissioner Maynott determined to capture the monster, can Lucille, with help from motormouth Raoul and shy Emile, keep Francoeur safe?
Colorfully animated in a style that pays homage to early twentieth-century cinema and boasting the vocal talents of Vanessa Paradis and Sean Lennon, A Monster in Paris is an engaging treat for the whole family to enjoy.
