  1. El Biffo's rating of the film The Rabbi's Cat

  2. jooley's rating of the film The Rabbi's Cat

    Weird, hilarious and beautifully ethnic - I loved it. The characters, particularly the cat, were endearingly flawed and voiced wonderfully. As for the story, well, it has an unorthodox structure, with episodes strung together without a lot of urgency and a lot of discussions that might be lost on non-jewish/muslim folk. It did nail the deserty oriental vibe and the music was splendid.

  3. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film The Rabbi's Cat

    Conte d'animation communautaire juif très sympa, les images de SFAR ont le charme de la ligne claire d'Hergé. Un joli message de paix, d'intelligence, du bien-vivre ensemble qui n'évite pas quelques clichés.

  5. Andrei Fyodorov's rating of the film The Rabbi's Cat

    Loved it because of the soundtrack - a fusion of Satie-style 'furniture music' and klezmer tunes. The story itself is rather fascinating. Kids were laughing at the theatre.

  6. redux's rating of the film The Rabbi's Cat

    Just like Sfar's other movie, Gainsbourg, it starts on a high note, and loses it all midway.

  8. Henrique Amud's rating of the film The Rabbi's Cat

    The cat is greatt and the animationis fantastic, but it got lost right in the middle of the film and took long to get interesting again. As someone already put it, full of awkward remarks on seriou topics

  9. Jordan Peters's rating of the film The Rabbi's Cat

    Loses steam and becomes boring and meandering, but not a bad film.

  10. Doch Cobaina's rating of the film The Rabbi's Cat

    Cat is awesome! but he is kinda apart from the rest, in the whole is a slack-baked work full of awkward remarks on serious topics..

  11. Bárbara's rating of the film The Rabbi's Cat

    Adorei o desenho, o gato falante, os cenários incrivelmente bonitos e, acima de tudo: os sonhos do gato... Muito bom, mesmo. A história, nem tanto. Um tanto ou quanto aborrecida; o que é pena.

  12. xrystyna's rating of the film The Rabbi's Cat

    this cartoon is made of several little episodes, loosely connected with each other. some are better than others; the cat's dream was amazing! yet unfortunately some of the episodes were too bland...

  13. linuskendall's rating of the film The Rabbi's Cat

    Beautifully animated film about a Rabbi and his talking cat. While the movie features some wonderful characters (the Sufi Sfar cousin, the Rabbi himself and obviously his cat) and hilarious episodes (the Belgian reporter for example) it sometimes feels a bit jumbled or confused (from inter-religious convos in Algiers to roadtrip to Russian/African love marriage...). All in all however, it's a wonderful little film!

  14. Anne's rating of the film The Rabbi's Cat

    Very beautiful, and funny.

  15. olivh2o's rating of the film The Rabbi's Cat

    Nice crossover between religions, people, thoughts. Even though 3d was pointless, story could have been more dense, and the end was unfinished.
