Storyline

In striking black and white, a stray tomcat spans a year of sweet memories, recounting the events in his relationship with her, his young and fresh female friend. Affectionately, through the cat's ever-watchful eyes, everything is recorded: his discovery by her on that rainy day of spring, his first summer love, autumn's disappointments, and finally, winter's resolution. In the end, this is an urban tale of opposites: loneliness and friendship, heartbreak and love. Written by Nick Riganas

The seasons of the cat
27 May 2005 | by AtavistenSee all my reviews

Three seasons of this cats life is summed up in five minutes by the cat himself. He goes dating with Mimi in summer and she wants to marry him, but seeing as they are both kittens and he has an affair with an adult woman he cant do anything but make empty promises to her.

Its a pleasant short with lots of detail. The drawings are wonderful all made in black and white depicting the city realistically. The story is likewise interesting from the perspective of the cat. You can really tell a story in five minutes, thats remarkable.

If this is made by a débutant it looks very promising for hers/his carrier.
