Storyline

Pelle is a cat who was born without a proper tail. He is taken care of by a family living in Uppsala. Without a tail, he becomes the talk of the town among the other cats, and especially Måns, who teases him cruelly. Måns' rough and silly courting of Maja Gräddnos does not impress her, since she becomes interested in the kind and gentle Pelle. But Måns won't give up that easy... Written by Mattias Thuresson

Pelle Svanslös is an excellent Swedish film for children which teaches good values.
26 May 2015 | by FilmCriticLalitRaoSee all my reviews

The focus on entertainment is so high in most animation films for children that they tend to neglect the educational content.This is one major reason why over a period of time children become bored with animation films.Swedish animation film 'Pelle Svanslös' is a different animation film which not only entertains the children but also educates young adults.It has been directed by Jan Gissberg and Stig Lasseby who depict what happens when some animals especially cats start to behave like human beings ? As a film with a lot of educational content 'Pelle Svanslös' has numerous episodes about cats' interactions with each other.No viewer would remain emotionally untouched by episodes such as a cat wooing other cat, a cat who uses all kinds of dishonest tricks to prevent an intelligent yet unlucky cat to achieve greater glory. Although the cats have major roles in this film,the presence of human beings has not been sacrificed in this film.This might well be considered an excellent reason to watch this film with one's family members.
