Did You Know?


Although the story takes place in a world completely devout of humans, one human-like figure does appear in the movie. The Dracula in "The 4 gangsters" clip is clearly a human vampire, as evident by the shape of his nose and mouth (not counting the vampire fangs, of course). See more »


The relative size of the characters alternates between scenes. For example, the mice and rats are scaled almost realistically to the cats, with the rats being a little shorter and the mice being much smaller than them. In one scene, a mouse even rides inside a glass bottle that a rat drank empty. But when the rats and mice share a scene, they are almost of the same hight. See more »

Surprisingly Fresh!!!!!!
28 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Movies like this are not very available to the American public. American films are available around the world because we apparently have a corner on the entertainment market, and if a film wants to find real widespread love and recognition, it must, more often than not, make a transition into the American market.

And I think that is sad.

Naturally, our language barriers keep us from appreciating this wonderful "Cat City" as do the Hungarians who so finely produced it, but still, this movie is a witty satire, a spoof of great film genres, and surprisingly political in how it deals with names and the skin color of the rats. It's a film about your place in the big picture, about who's in control and why.

A great film find, one of animated brilliance. This animated film was thousands of times better than many animated American films I have grogged my way through over the years. I just really really hate that more people cannot see films like this and appreciate them for what they are: true pieces of art in the highest form.
