Cat in Paris, A

Graham Eley

A hand-crafted animation from France that promises much during the disposition, disappoints when it degenerates into a thin and fatuous cops and robbers tale, and loses the audience some way before the film’s close.


An engaging moggy, who comforts a traumatised girl by day, joins forces with a human cat burglar for nocturnal adventures on the roof tops of Paris.  A neat idea that proves agreeable enough until an encounter with the Parisian mafia triggers a series of coincidences that become progressively more preposterous.


The animation is in the familiar style of second generation Modernist figurative painters that dominated much of the art world between the wars.  It works very well here but don’t expect the wit of Sylvain Chomet.buy motilium tabletsdomperidone buy order domperidone from canadathuoc domperidone where to buy motilium in the usdomperidone suspension buy domperidone from canada


For some reason, it received an Oscar nomination for best animation feature.
