A cat in Paris (Une vie de chat) at the Miami Beach Cinematheque

From July 21 through 26, 2012.

The Academy Award® nominated A Cat in Paris from directors Jean-Loup Felicioli and Alain Gagnol, featuring the voices of Academy Award® winner Marcia Gay Harden, Academy Award® winner Anjelica Huston and Matthew Modine, is a beautifully hand-drawn caper set in the shadow-drenched alleyways of Paris. Dino is a cat that leads a double life. By day he lives with Zoe, a little girl whose mother is a detective in the Parisian police force.

But at night Dino sneaks out the window to work with Nico – a slinky cat burglar with a big heart, whose fluid movements are poetry in motion as he evades captors and slips and swishes from rooftop to rooftop across the Paris skyline. Rife with film references (from Reservoir Dogs to Goodfellas to The Night of the Hunter) A Cat in Paris is a warm and richly humorous love letter to classic noir and American gangster films, with jazz soundtrack featuring Billie Holiday.

Screenings on July 21 and 22 will be at 3:15 p.m. July 24 through 26 at 7:00 p.m.
