Directors Jean-Loup Felicioli and Alain Gagnol favor a modish visual style and a jazzy score, both of which are charming.

It's a sweet and disquieting excursion made by filmmakers whose eyes and ears and imaginations are in marvelous sync.

A Cat in Paris is an animated delight, a hand-drawn puff pastry.

Where do cats go at night? Animated Cat delightfully answers that eternal question for young and older audiences [in] a city of shadows enveloped in noir sounds of jazz.

Its imaginative artistry - and brevity - keep you from dwelling on the shortcomings of its story-telling.

ections of A Cat in Paris feel draggy even at the abbreviated running time of 65 minutes. But in the best parts, the crisscrossing plot strands all pause for a moment, and we just get to watch and listen to what's going on in this stylishly imagined world.
June 1, 2012
A very under-developed French animated thriller that fails to engage our emotions.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

Seems slight and unremarkable...

There are wild chases and fever dreams, and sometimes the thieving and the thieves become a muddle. But the animation of A Cat in Paris itself is so artful, it steals the day.

A nifty little caper in which blustery gangsters, intrepid detectives, cat burglars (one of them literally feline) and a little girl named Zo scamper across nighttime rooftops unraveling a pleasantly tangled plot.

Very atmospheric animated policier should deliver the goods for older as well as younger audiences.

The visuals of A Cat in Paris resonate in any language, and it doesn't hurt that the picture features a stunning, stealthy Bernard Hermann-style orchestral score by Serge Bessett.

May 31, 2012
A barely feature-length diversion that lacks the energy to grip younger viewers or the depth to impress adults, but it earns respect with its makers' dedication to old-school craft.

Unoriginal and mired in bad jokes.

An animated film with the cozy charm of an advertisement for Starbucks French Roast, A Cat in Paris is all design and no danger.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

The old-fashioned 2D animation is a welcome change from the current 3D obsession. Charming.

April 7, 2012
A pleasantly flickering hand-made comedy-thriller in which Dino, a cat belonging to Zo, daughter of a widowed female police superintendent, gets involved in crime.
April 6, 2012
Beautifully animated and gorgeously designed, this is a hugely enjoyable and deservedly Oscar nominated French adventure with an emotionally engaging central story, delightful characters and a terrific score.
