This weekend, filmgoers in Los Angeles will be able to catch the French animated movie A Cat in Paris during its Oscar-qualifying run (Dec 2-7) at the AMC Burbank Town Center 8.
The film made its international premiere at the 2011 Berlinale and has been nominated for a European Film Award in the Best Animated Feature category. It has garnered raves on the US and international festival circuit including appearances at San Francisco Int’l Film Festival, Seattle International Film Festival, London International Film Festival, and Annecy International Animated Film Festival.
Alain Gagnol and Jean-Loup Felicioli’s A Cat in Paris follows the adventures of Dino, a cat who leads a double life as a thief. Produced by French studio Folimages and distributed in the U.S. by GKids, this traditionally animated movie is a humorous love letter to classic noir films and the stylized wit of the Pink Panther cartoons, with jazz soundtrack featuring Billie Holiday.
