Storyline

In the city of Istanbul, there are more than just human inhabitants. There are also the stray domestic cats of the city who live free but have complicated relationships with the people themselves. This film follows a selection of individual cats as they live their own lives in Istanbul with their own distinctive personalities. However, with this vibrant population, is the reality of an ancient metropolis changing with the times that may have less of a place for them. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

A delightful movie set in a delightful city
3 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

As one who loves both Istanbul and cats, I looked forward to seeing this movie. I was not disappointed. Istanbul is depicted in all its cosmopolitan beauty...but the cats are the stars of the show.

Istanbul has an abundance of stray cats, but the Turkish people care for them by providing food and shelter and (in many cases) affection and company. It's not a city for cat phobics, nor is this movie suitable for people who don't like cats. But, if you do, it's a delight. The cats' unique personalities shine through, as the movie takes you to various neighborhoods to show their daily routines. The camera aims about 8 inches off the ground, so you really feel like a cat following the stars through their activities. We see affectionate cats, dignified cats, vulnerable cats, resourceful and acrobatic cats, tough cats, artistic cats. And, in between, we hear from the people who love them. We learn something about how these cats fit into their life philosophy, and why some of them go to great lengths to help them survive and thrive.

It's a beautiful look at a unique culture and its feline residents. If you can get to Istanbul, it's worth the effort ten times over. But, even if you can't, this little gem will give you an interesting look into the city and its occupants, both feline and human.
