Emile was a movie projectionist, his friend Raoul was an inventor. together they made a delivery to the professor's house. accidentally they caused an explosion that enlarged a creature that was originally a flea. the very next day, the creature was featured in the newspaper for scaring the citizens. Lucille, Raoul's childhood friend, who was now a popular singer met with the creature, became friend with him and named him Francour.
although it wasn't a creation of Pixar nor Dreamworks, A Monster in Paris (2011) looked polished enough to be pleasant. it definitely came very close visually. unfortunately, the plot wasn't strong enough to be memorable. the part especially, about Francour, the softhearted giant flea that supposedly should capture our heart. very little time was given to him, nor do we get to know him a little in depth.
