I needed to be reminded that this is a young adult's film that can pass as a children's story. Though rather a little dark sometimes. "A Cat In Paris" gives off a gloomy-happy mood. The film strikes me as an abstract art in animation. It's fascinating. It's quite a delightful story, with lotsa parkour involved, and a lot of cat talk which delights me the most.
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.
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
This is one of the films where it's best to watch it without the dubbing, which contains muddled accents, annoying voices and mediocre translation (they promised subtitles!), but even with the dub this film is an improvement over Folimage's earlier efforts, and concerns you over how mainstream America prefers its animation to be.
The style of animation is not one I especially appreciate. That's quickly forgotten though as I became absorbed in the sprightly tale of cops and robbers, life and death, a cat and a kid, all set to a vivacious score. There are some dark themes touched on but the story bounces along without dwelling in the dark places for long.
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.
