An entertaining hand-drawn animation piece sure to be a fond memory for the few American kids who get an opportunity to see it. Honestly, though, the art wasn't that great, the story was basic, and overall if it weren't a French production I don't really think it would have received very much attention, much less an Oscar nomination. It was a diversionary amusement for a blissful short amount of time.--PolarisDiB
Cute but featherweight animated film about a mute little girl and her cat, whose adventures with a cat burglar in lead them to an encounter with an infamous gangster who killed her father. Beautifully animated, but it's blink-and-you'll-miss-it short at just barely over an hour long.
very fun, and very interesting to see that they weren't afraid to show an insinuation of real danger or loss in a film that would be seen by children. even police in cartoons or shows meant for children in the US aren't allowed to have real guns with bullets in them. overall, aside from all of that as well, this was incredibly charming, and a real treat to watch.
A charming French animation, recognised by the Academy with a nomination nod, with a fresh take in traditional paint cartooning, a great soundtrack and plenty of suspense, is above all stylish and captivating for children and growups alike.
it's a pity mubi doesn't allow for half-stars... 4 is too much for this one, but on the other hand i really liked the animation and the cat + soundtrack wasn't annoying (unlike in couple of other cartoons i've watched recently). all in all, good to give your brain a rest and your eyes a treat and definitely sth i'll show to my goddaughter ))
A vibrant, charismatic, and emotional animated film from the directing duo of Jean-Loup Felicioli and Alain Gagnol (who would later wow us with PHANTOM BOY). A CAT IN PARIS is a tale of revenge, of childhood trauma, and Parisian villainy using creativity and intelligence in both storytelling and visuals. I was impressed with the use of colors, the flow of the characters, and the unvarnished perception of evil.
