"The Cat Piano" is an Australian, 8.5-minute short film from 7 years ago and the star here is clearly the narrator, Australian (not a coincidence for sure) musician Nick Cave. Writer and director Ari Gibson and Eddie White have not really been too prolific before or after their probably most famous work, this animated short film here. Sadly, I did not enjoy it too much in terms of the pretentious poem we hear or the all-over-the-place animation we see. Cave's voice adds a nicely atmospheric touch to it, but that really cannot make-up for the massive flaws in writing here. If you still enjoyed it, let me recommend you the German animated feature film "Felidae", which reminded me a bit of it. I do not recommend "The Cat Piano". Thumbs down.
