The rein 'cat' nation of Franz Liszt.
9 February 2016 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Louisa loves classic music, listening to and playing. One day, she and her husband Edward discover a stray cat in their Garden, the Feline finds its way into their home. The elderly couple disagree over the cat, Louisa loves him, Edward positively hates it. When Louisa begins playing the cat seems to react differently to the various composers, she starts to think the cat is the re-incarnation of composer Liszt.

A very unusual episode, how something so small can result in such absolute rage. I especially love the performance of Wendy Hiller, an amazing actress. Joseph Cotton was great too as her misery of her husband, and that was one lovely cat too.

The craziest episode to date, rather insane matter, but it all works rather wonderful, the best bit is the 'snap,' we all have a breaking point, even the most mild mannered people.

Clever, 7/10
