Cartoon Production Information:


Release date is that of the film's first showing at the Berlin International Film Festival. The film's United Kingdom premiere was at the Edinburgh Film Festival on June 16, 2010; general release in France was also on June 16, 2010. The first footage from the film was shown at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival.

The film was made at Chomet's Edinburgh animation studio Django Films by an international group of animators. Sylvain Chomet stated that the film's production cost around £13 million and was funded by Pathé Pictures.

The story is based on an unproduced script by a live-action master of French comedy, Jacques Tati. The character name "Monsieur Tatischeff" is Jacques Tati's real name. Although Tati set the story in Czechoslovakia, Chomet shifted the story to Edinburgh, and to a Hebridean island where the girl speaks only Gaelic. As with Les Triplettes de Belleville, there isn't any actual dialogue, so the music provides the linguistic clues.
