Audience Reviews for Nekojiru-so (Cat Soup)
One of the weirdest animations I'ver ever seen. Bizarre! It's like a dream or a giant LSD trip! And the story is great!More
Lovely, unique, surreal and oddly profound. You won't know what the fuck you just watched, but you'll almost certainly find something to like about it.More
If you're like me, you'll get through this entire film (it's about 33 minutes) without understanding that it's about visiting the realm of the dead to retrieve the soul of a family member. But "Cat Soup" is actually more fun when perceived as just an insane collection of disconnected visions and set pieces. The animation style suggests something aimed at six-year-olds but, hold on, what's all this macabre stuff about dismemberment and cannibalism? The "wow" factor is strong with this one. I am no anime fetishist, but "Cat Soup" is remarkable.More
Freaky little animation about two kittens on a journey to find the sisters soul , directed by Tatsuo Sato, inspired by manga artist Nekojiru who committed suicide at the age of thirty one.
You can find all three parts on youtube, here's the first bit
