A Monster in Paris (French: Un monstre à Paris) is a 2011 French 3D computer-animated musical comedy fantasy adventure film directed by Bibo Bergeron, produced by Luc Besson, written by Stéphane Kazandjian, distributed by EuropaCorp Distribution, features the voices of Sean Lennon, Vanessa Paradis, Adam Goldberg, Danny Huston, Madeline Zima, Matthew Géczy, Jay Harrington, Catherine O’Hara, and Bob Balaban and based on a story he wrote. Some aspects of the film are (very loosely) based on Gaston Leroux’s novel The Phantom of the Opera. It was released on 12 October 2011.
Wonderful film full of charm, music and a double romance. The animation is smooth and graceful and really makes the characters come to life. There are also elements of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’. Recommended.
