A Cat in Paris (2010)

A Cat in Paris (2010)

Directed by: Jean-Loup Felicioli, Alain Gagnol

Starring: Dominique Blanc, Bruno Salomone, Jean Benguigui

This was a fun little movie. Not great, but I wouldn’t turn it off if it was on. It’s nice to see a movie with a different style of animation than the standard sort of Disney/CGI/whatever stuff we get a lot of. I’m a big cartoon nerd, though, maybe that’s just what it is. I’m pretty sure A Cat in Paris isn’t going to win the Oscar it’s nominated for, but I’m glad it was nominated, otherwise I wouldn’t have seen it.

For some reason, this is a hard movie for me to synopsize. All right, it’s like this: There’s a burglar, the chief of police, her mute daughter, an evil villainous crook and his idiot henchmen, and a cat. The cat doesn’t do anything, don’t be fooled by the name. The bad guy is out to steal a statue, but the girl overhears and the burglar (who is a nice burglar) helps the kid and the cop to defeat the bad guy.

It’s a pretty neat movie. The animation during the action sequences aren’t that great, and the criminals are a little too goofy and worthless to work well as antagonists, but it’s a kid’s movie, whatever. Actually, of all the films I’ve seen nominated for best animated film this year, this was one of the more… humanistic. Also, probably the best one for kids.
