Running Time: 70 Minutes
A thrilling mystery that unfurls in the alleys and on the rooftops of Paris, over the course of one adventurous evening.
An enchanting fable about looking past appearances and cultivating unlikely loyalties in times of need, A Cat in Paris is the first feature-length collaboration by the creative team of Alain Gagnol and Jean-Loup Felicioli. Impressive 2-D animation turns the streets of Paris into a delicate watercolor study, as cat burglar Nico and cat Dino leap nimbly across rooftops and slip silently into open windows in search of loot. Unbeknownst to Nico, Dino actually leads a double life. By day he is the constant companion of seven-year-old Zoe, the daughter of an overextended, widowed police commissioner, Jeanne. Zoe hasn’t spoken since gang boss Victor Costa murdered her father. Her mother, determined to bring Costa to justice, is unable to give her much attention, leaving her instead in the care of her nanny Claudine, who herself leads a double life as Costa’s gal pal. A criminal in job description only, nice guy Nico finds himself protecting Zoe against Costa’s gang after she inadvertently stumbles on a plot to steal the so-called Colossus of Nairobi while following Dino on his mysterious rounds. To bring Costa to justice and rescue Zoe, Jeanne is forced to place her faith in a man she knows to be an outlaw. Children of all ages will root for the undercats in this droll thriller, while the moody cityscape and a cool retro jazz soundtrack will appeal to their hip elders.
