English Title: Cat Listening to Music
Les Films du Jeudi
Directed by: Chris Marker
Synopsis: The second of a series of short films focusing on animals by director Chris Marker. In this one a cat listens to music while relaxing on a keyboard.
Featured Feline: The cat, named Guillaume-en-Egypt, is seen lying on a keyboard as music is played.
While Guillaume seems to be sleeping most of the time he does open his eyes once in a while.
That’s really all there is to the film, except to say the shots of Guillaume are stunning and beautiful.
Also there is a photograph of a gray cat nearby. Does this hint at a backstory of some kind? Who can say?
Final Mewsings: How do we know the cat is really listening?
