The Rabbi’s Cat

France’s favorite kosher kitty leaps from the comic pages to the big screen in this gorgeously animated adaptation of the bestselling Joann Sfar adult graphic novel about a talking cat and his philosophical musings on religion.

Set in the colorful seaside world of 1930s colonial Algiers, when Jews and Arabs coexisted in relative peace, the story centers on a warmhearted widower rabbi, his sensuous daughter and their feisty feline who miraculously gains the ability to speak after swallowing the family parakeet. Curious and contrarian, the cat wonders aloud about his Jewish identity and soon insists on having a Bar Mitzvah. Thus begins a chain of freewheeling adventures with a mélange of uniquely eccentric characters, and a provocative exploration of Judaism and related sociopolitical issues.

Presented in both 2D and 3D formats, THE RABBI’S CAT is rich with the dazzling sights and sounds of North Africa, and is winner of the French César for Best Animated Film.
