August 30, 2012
A Cat in Paris is thrilling, and a thrilling example of traditional ink and paint cartooning.

[It] glories in striking silhouettes, a slinky '50s beat, a bright storybook palette and an entrancing brand of make-believe that grown-ups can believe in.

"A Cat in Paris" has a jazzy, relaxed beauty; it's old-school, hand-drawn animation, and you sense the fun the artists were having.

"A Cat in Paris" has a low-key charm and pleasurably laconic visual style.

The graphic design and humor are whimsical, the color scheme deep and shadowy, and the perils facing Zoe and her police-inspector mom just shivery enough to give the story some spice.

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

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.

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 Zoé scamper across nighttime rooftops unraveling a pleasantly tangled plot.

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.

It's difficult to imagine the audience for this pretty but hollow film.

This unexpected Best Animated Feature Oscar nominee is sleek, stylish animated escapade that makes vivid, affecting use of its brief running time.

A charming little French animation (not suitable for very young children,) directed by Alain Gagnol and Jean-Loup Felicioli...

A Cat in Paris is easy enough on the eyes yet never quite justifies feature-length status.
