A Monster in ParisThe French animated movie A Monster in Paris offers a new twist on the classic tale of Beauty and the Beast.

Rated PG, the foreign romance film tells the story of Franc, a monster created from a reaction between a flea and a crazy scientist’s mystery potion. Despite his strange looks, Franc is a soft-centered soul with a talent for music who becomes the talk of the town with the help of enchanting nightclub singer Lucille. But Franc also attracts the attention of Paris’ egotistical police commissioner, who’s hell bent on securing a big prize to help his battle to become mayor.

A Monster in Paris was produced by Luc Besson (Lockout) and written and directed by Bibo Bergeron (Shark Tale). The movie features the voices of Catherine O’Hara (Frankenweenie), Adam Goldberg (Miss Nobody), Bob Balaban (Howl) and Danny Huston (Hitchcock), as well as the singing of Vanessa Paradis and Sean Lennon.

Critics lauded the foreign film, giving it 83% approval, according to Rotten Tomatoes.
