Triplets of Bellville

Posted February 16th, 2004 by Anthony

I’m fascinated that disability keeps showing up in different venues. The Triplets of Bellville is an animated movie from France, Canada, Belgium, and the UK. The primary character is the Grandmother. Her right shoe has a significant lift, so when she walks she makes a clumping noise. It’s a style of orthopedic shoe one just doesn’t see anymore. (I’m not sure why.)
Her disability is, I think, intended to give Grandmother an old-fashioned, quirky look. The portrayal didn’t seem particularly negative, but a curiosity.
