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)

Istanbul from a cat's-eye view.
17 February 2017 | by typicaltaylorSee all my reviews

This movie was wonderful. Whether you're a cat lover or not, it's hilarious, poignant, and amazingly well-shot.

The cinematography of capturing so many cats at play, fighting, protecting their babies, etc. must have been absolutely grueling, so huge kudos to the filmmakers for presenting a work which so obviously shows care was taken to get these amazing visuals.

Kedi is a love letter to the cats of Istanbul, and their guardian angels who keep them fed and sheltered. Go see it!
