"Cat" is cool
14 September 2009 | by (The Twin Cities, Minnesota) – See all my reviews

The Cat Piano is a compelling Australian animated short film directed by Eddie White and Ari Gibson (at this moment you can find it on YouTube). In a deep black and blue style, The Cat Piano takes the viewer to a dark cat underworld of jazz, lounging, and pain where a loner cat poet (voiced by Australian musician Nick Cave) tells the disturbing story of a horrible incident that occurred in this cat town.

Over a period of time, cats all over town are suddenly disappearing - but not just any cats: singer cats are disappearing, cats that would perform on stage in the local jazz and lounge clubs. The poet cat explains, as the town spirals into paranoia and violence, his theory that the singer cats were taken to become part of a twisted "cat piano" and describes his attempt to find these missing cats, where he especially hopes to find a specific female feline singer that he has fallen for. The Cat Piano is one cool short with swathing narration, exquisite visuals, and a cool animation feline film noir feel - let's hope that the Academy is watching.
