4.5 ⁞ Great camera work, achieving very intimate shots. I'm fine with observing, as it's something I regularly like to do. It also didn't feel like I was just "watching cats doing things" - the learning processes and tenderness, in this homely and daily life setting, felt very relatable as a social being. Also, there's the precious image of that kitten, barely learned to walk but promptly trying to climb up the pole.
[seen the silent version] Was I to give a semiar on intimacy and the camera this would definitly make the selection of my material - a camerawork so close and with such warmth (I know I say that word a lot), that it manages to make a personal narration out of something considered "unpersonal" - the life of a cat. this really goes private, telling a lot about cats and humans alike. plese do watch!
The cutest silent film I've ever seen indeed. Although I didn't really get the "cat's-eye view" of the film, it sure was adorable to watch. To see this mother cat at her most private part of her life was breathtaking. Mother cats usually hide during giving birth, so as an owner of 8 cats, it was really touching to see that moment.
