A Cat in Paris (2010)

We often hear tales of cats that lead double lives, trawling the neighborhood on varying days and visiting one of the many places it calls home. It comes as no surprise then, that someone has decided to make a film about such a cat.

By day, Dino is a doting cat owned by Zoe, the daughter of a Parisian Police Officer who has been mute since the death of her father, but by night he is sidekick to Nico, a wanted cat burglar operating in the area. One night Dino's two world's collide when Zoe follows him to Nico's house and winds up getting involved with the mob who killed her father.

A Cat In Paris is a great little film with some marvellous animation and a classic noir tale of intrigue and mystery. I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys both intelligent animated films and old 30's and 40's classic mystery tales!
