Movie Info

Hundreds of thousands of cats have roamed the metropolis of Istanbul freely for thousands of years, wandering in and out of people's lives, impacting them in ways only an animal who lives between the worlds of the wild and the tamed can. Cats and their kittens bring joy and purpose to those they choose, giving people an opportunity to reflect on life and their place in it. In Istanbul, cats are the mirrors to ourselves.

  • Kedi ('cat' in Turkish) is much more than a cute film showing these felines' day-to-day lives.

    July 4, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The delightful Kedi portrays a complex city founded on history and tradition, and surrounded by goodwill, magnificence, and fragility.

    October 29, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Part wildlife documentary, part urban love letter. Kedi may only be a slender 79 minutes long, but it's a lyrical and surprising philosophical tribute to the therapeutic power of pets.

    July 6, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The cats are captured with adoring attentiveness, their intelligent eyes narrowing to slits, their darting movements, a patch of sun-warmed fur, the way one kitten clambers a market stall to paw a pile of oranges.

    July 2, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Filmed at whisker-height, this charming documentary enters the daily lives of the many street cats of Istanbul.

    June 30, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • You needn't be a cat lover to enjoy Kedi, since the film will make you one anyway.

    A fantastic documentary showing the life of street cats in Istanbul. Beautifully shot and with cats full of character, this is the best cat film so far and one all cat owners or cat fans should watch. Fantastic.

    Kedi shows how the cats of Istanbul bring out the humanity in people. Funny but a tad boring at times, Kedi was charming for this and all cat lover. (4-13-17)
