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)

Kedi beautiful and sweet film
3 April 2017 | by See all my reviews

Uplifting story about the cats of Istanbul and the kind people who care for them and love them. Incredible cinematography beautifully photographed. The city of Istanbul looks both beautiful and mysterious. After seeing this film you will want to consider a trip to this fascinating ancient city. As no other film has done you will experience the incredible lives of these animals How they survive take care of their young and still remain playful happy an adventurous. One of the best documentaries I have ever seen. A film that you will not forget. This really is a captivating gentle film about the special bond between very decent people and these interesting animals that interact with them daily. It reminds us that a cat looking up at us is one of those moments how sweet life really is and that we should appreciate these moments that remind us that were alive.Ceyda Torun the director has given us a great cat's eye view of their lives haunts travels and more importantly the personalities. But she gives us a glimpse of the every day people and how caring for these animals has brightened their lives. The 7 cats are all quite distinctive and memorable. A special thanks to Kira Fontana for a beautiful sound track that enhances this film with Turkish and world music that must be made available. To all involved with the production of this film you have done a great job. This film has been very well received.
