A Cat in Paris
A Cat in Paris is an animated adventure French film produced by French animation studio Foliomage. Directed by Alain Gagnol and Jean-Loup Felicioli, A Cat in Paris is a story of a Parisian girl whose cat takes her to loosen an intimidating mystery during one evening.
The movie revolves around a cat that lives a double life with his owner Zoe by day, and assisting a burglar named Nico by nightfall. Zoe follows her pet cat, whom she calls Dino, one night to discover his nocturnal adventures only to fall into the trap of a gangster. It is now up to Dino and Nico to save the little girl.
The film was illustrated entirely by hand without employing any computer software programs that most recentanimation films rely on. The movie is displayed in pictures, more of cartoons and is a bunch of drawings. The movie detailing by hand keeps the visuals simple yet beautiful. A Cat in Paris is a wonderful expression aptly originating from a group of 19th century artists living in Paris.
Use of small, delicate brush strokes and use of movement against vibrant colour schemes have created emotional depth within this artwork. The images used in the movie are pointedly and delightfully out of proportion; feet are too small as compared to the bodies; perception shift and slide make solid object wobble apparently. The makers of the film have taken advantage of the freedom of animation and imagination to make things work.
