Cat Soup

Sep 17, 2010

Oh my God. Wow.

That was my reaction after I finished watching Cat Soup.

It is a very weird, very creepy, but very very beautiful short film. The storyline (or what I gathered of it) revolves around two cats, one of whom is very sick/dying/possibly even already dead- who knows? - and the other tries everything he can to make them better. They go on an... interesting... journey to the circus, across the sea, through time and to the ends of the earth, and more. Throughout there is bucketloads of symbolism, mostly extremely ambiguous. I interpreted some very interesting metaphors for nature and how its being destroyed... I think anyway. And the animation that accompanies all this is utterly amazing and creates an engaging and wondrous atmosphere.

In the end, you will be left with a feeling of melancholy and complete bewilderment.

Cat Soup is an amazing short film. If you are into the dark, creepy and fascinating then it is the perfect half an hour to watch.
