A Cat in Paris 1.0 stars

Cat in Paris movie poster

If they’d put as much love into the story as they did into the liquid, hand-colored look of things, this story of a sad little girl, a thief, and the cat who divides his time between the two would be a triumph. As it is, A Cat in Paris still deserves accolades for its use of the form -- the thief’s undulating grace, the pleasingly skewed perspectives in the Paris cityscapes, and a charmingly rendered rescue in Stygian darkness make for a visual feast. But oh, that story -- a conventional TV cop drama that wanders before devolving into an implausible action flick. 2010.
