I saw this movie very recently and although I don't speak German or Russian, I still understood what was going on. I also found that this cute little movie entertained me on two levels. It had a great little plot that delivered a very good story about how a little cat can interact with its environment and survive. Although I have to admit I came into the movie about halfway, I really didn't feel it was totally about a little cat that became lost. The movie seemed to center on a Russian man, Fedin, who tries to survive in Moscow while still showing compassion for his cats. It then explored how his cats survived when he faced adversity. The movie also gave me a brief look at how some Russians live. They're not as sad and depressed as we are led to believe. Some of them even have money to buy Persian cats (Fedin sold his black Persian to make some money to feed his other cats). We average Americans really don't have a clue. The movie came off as an excellent Moscovian "Homeward Bound". Too bad it never made it to the masses. I'd love to find it on video!
