The Apartment Cat

Le chat d'appartement

Directed by Sarah Roper
France, 1998
Short, Animation, Family


Beautiful short about a day in the life of a bored apartment cat. Overweight and without affection, it escapes in an attempt to run after birds outside.
Beautifully artistic and humane, this short film is both touching and amusing in the exact same way as the Gershwin portion of Fantasia 2000.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
