Cat Out of the Bag Alert! This review contains some spoilers for this film!
Synopsis: Zoé (voiced by Oriane Zani) is a troubled little girl who loves her pet cat Dino. But Dino is leading a double-life; by day he’s an ordinary housecat while at night he’s the accomplice of a clever burglar named Nico (Bruno Salomone).
Cartoon Cat: This is a charming film from France which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. The animators do a wonderful job of bringing Dino to life, giving him all of the mannerisms and expressions of a true cat.
Dino is fiercely loyal to his friends, including both the little girl and the burglar who will interact in each others’ lives more than they could imagine.
Dino is instrumental in bringing about the rescue of Zoé from her captors, the gang of the ruthless gangster Victor Costa (voiced by Jean Benguigui) who previously killed Zoé’s father.
This is a thrilling tale terrific for cat lovers of all ages.
