Critic Reviews for The Island of Cats

All Critics (6) | Fresh (6)

  • 'Cats' is a knowing, warm-hearted drama that moves at a leisurely pace.

    April 4, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • If you're a viewer who needs dramatic resolution, you're not going to get much from this gentle story. It's as contemplative as an Ozu movie, albeit one which takes regular breaks to watch cats doing whatever it is they do with their time.

    March 3, 2020 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • "Island of Cats" is a soup-for-the-soul film (the focus on the local dishes definitely helps here), which highlights Iwago's love for his two main themes and the fact that it was made with love and good spirit.

    December 25, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Even though the film is based on the manga "Neko to Jiichan" by Nekomaki, again this is not your typical genre film. No oddness, fighting, darkness or oddball humour. Rather it is all about a simple human life. And cats.

    August 6, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • ...[celebrates] the simple gifts of life and the beauty and calmness of the non-urbanized areas of Japan.

    July 31, 2019 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • This movie is a mental vacation, with images of lovable cats and portrayals of pure-hearted island folk easing away stress like a long soak in a hot spring.
