Synopsis

Like all brilliant animation this one appeals to all ages. Madame Souza has a grandson called Champion - not the most sporty of boys but he loves his tricycle. Grandmother sees an opportunity and trains Champion to compete in the Tour de France. Will he make it? Will he win? This is a wonderfully inventive and stylish piece of animation with a twisted and sophisticated plot and one dazzling set piece after another. A handcrafted labour of love with astonishing attention to detail and richness of content. A pure delight from beginning to end. What is the French for 'Don't miss it'?
Nominated Best Foreign Film, British Independent Film Festival 2003
