French steampunk movie

Avril et le monde truqué is an animated steampunk movie based on the comics by Jacques Tardi. It portrays an alternate-history world in which technology has developed along a different steam-based track since the beginning of the 19th century. Protagonist Avril experiences a hectic Miyazaki-style adventure (e.g. with a talking cat) in places inspired by Jules Verne. That sounds like an appealing combination. Whether the movie will be shown in Swedish cinemas is still not clear, but I will certainly buy the DVD whenever it gets available.
