The Academy Award® nominated A CAT IN PARIS from directors Jean-Loup Felicioli and Alain Gagnol 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.

Featuring the voices of Academy Award® winner Marcia Gay Harden (Mystic River), Academy Award® winner Anjelica Huston (The Royal Tenenbaums) and Matthew Modine (Full Metal Jacket). The film is rated PG for mild action and violence, and some thematic material.

Nominated for Best Animated Feature at the Academy Awards and beloved by festival audiences and critics around the world. A CAT IN PARIS opened in US theaters on June 1, 2012. (Movie is rated PG, 70 min)
