A Cat in Paris: DVD Review

A Cat in Paris: DVD Review

A Cat In Paris
Rating: PG
Released by Madman Home Ent

One cat + two lives = lots of laughs and loveliness in this sublimely hand drawn animation from France.

Dino is the perfect pet - by the day delivering lizards to her master Zoe but by night, she's aide to a cat burglar who runs atop the roofs of Paris.
However, Zoe's bereft of a father figure after he was murdered by local gangster Costa and her mother, the chief of police is determined to track him down and tie up the local art thefts which have been going on - but the two things are connected by one feline...

Beautifully presented with heart, warmth and humour, A Cat in Paris is an universal treat.

There's some original animation on show, more than on a par with anything CGI can achieve and the inventiveness sings from the screen as the story unfolds.

With an eye on fun and an adventurous story, this beautifully told tale is one for all the family and can be enjoyed by all ages-it's not very often one says that about film these days and it's great to do so about Cat In Paris.

Extras: English version (stick to the French one though), featurette and trailer

Rating: 8/10
