Our take

Set against the dusty void of Kazakhstan’s infinite plains, this deadpan comedy is a film of dreamers and schemers. With its deep-focus compositions isolating the motley characters within the barren landscape, and its fond re-enactments of movie classics, Yellow Cat is a primary-colored delight.
