French cartoon about a cat that lives with Zoe a little girl. But, at night, he helps a cat burglar out.
I caught this at a film festival last year. It was a rainy Saturday afternoon and it was perfect in that respect. The kids in the theatre seemed to love it but the adults (like me) were underwhelmed. The animation was OK and it was pleasant but the plot was dull and I was bored long before the 70 minutes were up. How this got nominated for an Oscar is beyond me. Must have been a slow year for animated films. Kids might like it but not adults. I've got nothing else to say but IMDb says you must have 10 lines of text to get published. I give it a 6.
