Storyline

In the city of Istanbul, there are more than just human inhabitants. There are also the stray domestic cats of the city who live free but have complicated relationships with the people themselves. This film follows a selection of individual cats as they live their own lives in Istanbul with their own distinctive personalities. However, with this vibrant population, is the reality of an ancient metropolis changing with the times that may have less of a place for them. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Unnamed Human Resident of Istanbul: Dogs think people are God, but cats don't. Cats are aware of God's existence. Cats know that people act as middlemen to God's will. They're not ungrateful, they just know better.

Beautiful, scenic, emotional, loving, sweetly sad
13 March 2017 | by kathiroseSee all my reviews

Have been waiting for this. So glad I went. Can't see films with animal abuse, death so almost did not go but I was rewarded with a stunning film. See this; you will NOT be disappointed. Cinephotography stunning. People and cats both sad and sweet, poignant, with high emotional impact. Hope I can find the music. I love world music, instruments. The music alone makes it worth seeing. A mix of traditional music, a little jazz, no syrupy pop music. Kedi will keep your attention riveted. Cannot recommend any higher than 10 out of 10.
