Film noir et blanc [Review: Renaissance]

Renaissance (2006) is a stylish French animated thriller. The English voice acting from Daniel Craig and Romola Garai is good, however the real star is the futuristic Paris, imagined as if Gustave Eiffel had carried on building towers, walkways and ironworks across the city, and the resultant contrast between Gothic and modernist architecture is toon-rendered in perfect black and white CGI. The storyline is complex and engaging if not particularly original, revolving around kidnapping, corporate conspiracy, and criminal underworld goings-on in the cosmetics industry.
