Critic Consensus: Kedi is a cat fancier's dream, but this thoughtful, beautifully filmed look at Istanbul's street feline population offers absorbing viewing for filmgoers of any purr-suasion.

At 80 minutes, Torun's film feels a bit overlong, but it is as soft and warm as a kitten.
Cats wander in and out of frame; humans speculate on whether the local cats are ambitious or arrogant; Turkish music spills onto the soundtrack; and there's more than one growler of a catfight.
Though pleasant to watch, Torun's feature debut feels more like a meandering montage than a structured narrative, and it could easily be half as long.
Those who don't especially like cats - or Istanbul, for that matter - might not get a lot out of Turkish director Ceyda Torun's love letter to the feline population of her native city. For everyone else, it should be an almost unadulterated pleasure.
