Movie Info

When a young kitten's soul is stolen by Death, she and her brother set out for a strange land on a mission to recover the plundered entity. All Nyaako wants is her soul back, and her loyal brother Nyatta is more than willing to help his sister in her time of need. In the surreal and unexplored landscape of the Other Side, however, nothing is what it seems and their journey soon takes an ominous twist. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

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!

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.

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.

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
