A light-hearted and bewitching film that brings out all that's best and brightest about Japan. It's a kawaii-style affair that through - as funny as it may sound - the seemingly simple tale about a cat-renting business evaluates the problem of loneliness in the harsh, contemporary world of ours. The main character, a woman named Sayoko, lives with her lovable cats, spending every second in their company. During her every-day stroll around the neighborhood she continues to develop a most comical 'fame' as the rent-a-cat lady. While many lonely people use her services with much gratitude, she tries to follow the big dreams of finding the love of her life, unfortunately without much results. Through the routine that controls her life she gradually begins to realize that building a close relationship with an ordinary cat is much simpler than doing so with a human being. With its charming and alluring feel, adorable felines walking all around the screen, and many laughable situations, Rent-a-Cat is a Japanese comedy that will lighten up your day.
