The Rabbi's Cat Reviews

Page 1 of 1
Lawrence Toppman
Charlotte Observer

Like the title character, the makers of The Rabbi's Cat follow their noses wherever a new scent leads. Their eternal curiosity buoys this Cat, then impairs it somewhat, but redeems it by the end.

It's a movie that packs all its ideas in beautifully animated doses, filled with Northern African music and landscapes. It may get clunky, but it's easy to get lost in its loveliness.

The film presents an often sharp commentary on dueling beliefs and idiocies that unfolds in lush pastel hues and distinctively retro drawings.

While the scenes don't always fit together thematically or tonally, each one is its own polished gem.

An absorbing, nuanced, and vividly animated tale of adventure, ambivalent morality, colonial injustice, talking animals, and the vagaries of religious zeal and colonialism.

Despite its flaws, the film is at least a consistent vision, attesting through both its story and animation to the rabbi's right to be different while also striving for human solidarity.

It is often colorful, witty and inspired, but also too episodic, and lacks a strong ending.

For someone as gifted as Sfar at visual storytelling, the film is very, very talky. That said, voice work in French is a delight.

Despite the overstuffed storytelling, Sfar and co-director Antoine Delesvaux provide an incredible palette of visuals culled from the style Sfar originally created on paper.

"Ambitious" isn't the word here; "random" is more like it.
