"Resembling a Comic Book"

I don't think I'll be adding a category to my reviews, but thought I would note an interesting film that just came to my attention.

Taking place in Paris in 2045, Renaissance is described by its director as a "comic book brought to life"; it's a French black and white animated science fiction film that had a limited release last Friday (September 22nd). And when I say black and white, I don't just mean no color - it uses mostly pure black and white; there is very little in shades of gray, which is mostly used for shading and reflecting effects, according to the director.

Take a look at the U.S. site and watch the trailer. And hope that it comes to a theater near you; I doubt I'll be seeing it in Florence, AL.
