An Oscar nominee, this delightful animated adventure revolves around a little girl and her duplicitous pet cat who unwittingly cross paths with a criminal madman and his posse of bumbling thieves. Resolutely mute ever since her father was killed, Zoe lives in a comfortable Parisian apartment with her mother, a senior police investigator; Claudine, her doting nanny; and Dino, her big loveable feline companion. But Dino is not quite the lazy domesticated kitty he appears to be during the day for when the sun sets he sneaks out of Zoe’s window and joins forces with Nico, a kind-hearted and strangely lithe cat burglar (haha!) whose been relieving Paris’ wealthier residents of their unwanted jewellery. Isolated both psychologically and emotionally (her mother is too involved with catching the evil gangster who murdered her husband to pay more than a passing attention to her silent daughter’s needs) Zoe follows Dino on one of his nightly rendezvous, meets up with a somewhat flustered Nico, and accidentally eavesdrops on the wicked Victor Costa (the man who killed her father!) as he plans the biggest heist of his career…aided by someone Zoe knows only too well. What follows is a nicely imagined children’s story with kidnappings, daring rescues, and the kind of mild menace which always ends happily. Graced with bright cartoon energy and a jazzy musical score, A Cat in Paris has a wonderful retro look to its primitive animation—-picture Mike Judge studying under Picasso. A nice way to spend 70 minutes with the kiddies, and guaranteed not to cause nightmares.

Well, I did not read the reviews on this movie and I let me 4 year old watch the movie. It is NOT suitable for young children!!!! Due to the story line and contents.

A sweet but unremarkable story, with rather unimpressive animation. Not terrible, but you're not missing much here.

Fair – A Cat in Paris, A (2010) 70 min. [Animated] [Foreign French] The version available on DVD at OPL is the dubbed English version of this sweet but ordinary animated film about a cat burglar and what else…a cat. The animation is nouveau art and some of the scenes are clever. However, the film is not recommended for children – there’s a scene of a giant man with a….um….let’s put it this way – he’s not a eunuch. Cute film but forgettable.

Rated PG. Not for very young children because of crime and kidnapping issues. Watched it with my 9yr old and he got somewhat bored with it, so I ended up watching the end on my own. At least it had a happy ending!
