The Rabbi's Cat

Summary

Based on the best-selling graphic novel by Joann Sfar, THE RABBI'S CAT tells the story of a rabbi and his talking cat – a sharp-tongued feline philosopher brimming with scathing humor and a less than pure love for the rabbi’s voluptuous teenage daughter. Rich with the colors, textures, flavors and music of Mediterranean Africa, the film embarks on a cross continent adventure from the tiled terraces, fountains, quays and cafes of colonial Algiers to Maghrebi tent camps, dusty trading outposts, and deep blue Saharan nights in search of a lost Ethiopian city. Winner of Best Feature at the **Annecy International Animated Film Festival** and Best Animated Film at the **César Awards** *"The film presents an often sharp commentary on dueling beliefs and idiocies that unfolds in lush pastel hues and distinctively retro drawings." - Jeannette Catsoulis, **New York Times*** *"An absorbing, nuanced, and vividly animated tale of adventure, ambivalent morality, colonial injustice, talking animals, and the vagaries of religious zeal and colonialism." - Sarah Fisch, **Village Voice***
