Movie Info

The young Mia grows up in the not too distant future in the Megarida, a huge ship that has been stuck in the port of Naples for more than 15 years. When her father, a wealthy visionary and scientist, died, he took with him the technical secrets of his ship and his dream to revive the harbor. Since then, the girl lives in the shadow of her stepmother and her six deceitful daughters, surrounded by holographic memories of her childhood and her father. Meanwhile, the drug trade flourishes in the port. The criminal machinations also determine Mia's fate and she finds herself unexpectedly at the center of a plot. But Mia knows how to fight back and also gets unexpected help from allies of the past. The retro-futuristic thriller with its stirring story unfolds a visual intoxication of impressions. Full of melancholy and gloomy atmosphere, the film tells the story of Cinderella in a futuristic Naples of the 1920's. The film was first shown at the 74th Venice Film Festival 2017 in the section Orizzonti.

  • The classic fairytale gets an unexpectedly dark and adult update in Cinderella the Cat (Gatta cenerentola), a strikingly animated tale.

  • The filmmakers seem to have been trying for the kind of animated film noir that has been done so skillfully in Japan, but "Cinderella the Cat" never approaches that level.

  • Engagingly plotted, this hard-boiled fairytale has a potentially wider audience than Rak's debut, especially on home ground in Italy, as well as in animation-friendly France and Belgium.

  • It has demonstrated that it can appeal to viewers across national borders, and it will be of particular interest to those intrigued by the origins and complexities of the Cinderella tale.

    Aug 1, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • ...even when graded on a curve, Cinderella the Cat, now playing at Fantasia 2018, is disappointing.
