'A Monster in Paris' borrows some of its tics from silent cinema, but it also reaches out to films such as 'Frankenstein', 'Phantom of the Opera', 'The Fly' and 'King Kong' for inspiration.

A heady, intoxicating blend of the romantic majesty and rich culture of the City of Lights and the legacy provided by a century of great animation from both sides of the Atlantic courses through this beautiful film's DNA.

Lovely French animated period comedy offers a monster story with a charming difference... A flighty, enjoyable confection and very pretty to look at.

A giant flea ... The story is nothing special and most of the characters are forgettable, at best.

There's always something fun about watching an animation that doesn't come from a big studio. A Monster in Paris is a charming little CGI animation… More

What starts out as an interesting mixture of francophilia and post-B-Movie eeriness quickly derails into a formulaic and bland family adventure that lacks… More
