With a visual style that recalls Matisse and a flair for suspense reminiscent of Hitchcock, Jean-Loup Felicioli and Alain Gagnol’s exhilarating handdrawn animated film tells the story of a cat with not nine but two lives. During the day, kitty Dino lives with Zoe, a mute little girl whose mother works as a detective for the Parisian police. At night, Dino becomes the accomplice of Nico, a good-hearted burglar who leaps from rooftop to rooftop with balletic grace. The sly cat’s double life is exposed when Zoe decides to see what her beloved feline does after dark—an escapade that leads her into the clutches of the gangster who murdered her father.
