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)

Quotes

Unnamed Human Resident of Istanbul: Life is beautiful. If you know how to live. You can love if your heart is open. Everything is beautiful when you look at it with love. If you can enjoy the presence of a cat, a bird, a flower what can I say, all the world will be yours.

User Reviews

 
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.
