Cat in Paris, A (PG)

Animation, Crime, Mystery

A thrilling mystery that unfurls in the alleys and on the rooftops of the French capital, Paris, over the course of one adventurous evening.

The critical consensus

It’s a slight story but delicately drawn with a feline, jazzy score.

***(*)(*)Siobhan Synnot, The Scotsman, 01/04/2012

A charming, visually sparkling Parisian fantasy with a dark edge.

****(*)David Parkinson, Empire Online, 03/04/2012

Slight, but visually satisfying.

***(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 05/04/2012

It’s dead cute and exceedingly French, with all the somewhat arbitrary plotting that implies.

***(*)(*)Tim Robey, The Telegraph, 05/04/2012

An unexpected Oscar nomination has brought this whimsical French animation more attention than it might otherwise have gained.

***(*)(*)Andrew Pulver, The Guardian, 05/04/2012

Charming. We’ll be watching for what Feliciol and Gagnol deliver next.

***(*)(*)David Jenkins, Little White Lies, 05/04/2012

Though dealing with some grown up subjects, there's a magical air that's hard to resist. The jazz soundtrack is cool too.

****(*)Alison Rowat, The Herald, 05/04/2012

This likable French animated movie is a pleasantly flickering hand-made comedy-thriller.

Philip French, The Observer, 08/04/2012
