Tatsuo Sato’s creative and psychedelic piece, Cat Soup (from the Manga by Nekojiru), is a delightful dreamy quest for the soul.

We follow two cats, a brother and a sister, looking for the the soul of the later.

This Mind bending and provocative 32 mins Colorful succession of tableau has an amazing rhythm as if we skipped the explanation that gives a feature to go rapidly from one insane idea to another and on and on. It makes great use of sound, music and drawn imagery giving an unforgettable tone, a cross between its Japanese roots but with something of the Panic Movement and of surrealism. There’s plenty of inventiveness and it manages to create an highly fascinating and troubled universe. A fantastic film.

Not for children though…

Yours to discover
