From Folimage, the animation studio behind MIA & THE MIGOO and RAINING CATS AND FROGS, comes a beautifully hand-drawn caper set in the shadow-drenched alleyways of Paris.
Dino is a pet cat that leads a double life. By day he lives with Zoe, a little mute girl whose mother, Jeanne, is a detective in the Parisian police force. But at night he 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. The cat's two worlds collide when young Zoe decides to follow Dino on his nocturnal adventures and falls into the hands of Victor Costa, a blustery gangster planning the theft of a rare statue.
Now cat and cat burglar must team up to save Zoe from the bumbling thieves, leading to a thrilling acrobatic finale on top of Notre Dame. A Cat in Paris is a warm and richly humorous love letter to classic noir films and the stylized wit of the Pink Panther cartoons and Dino, the literal cat burglar, manages to steal the show with little more than a subtle swish of the tail and quiet mew.
