Ciné-Club Screens Outlandish Romp The Rabbi’s Cat

Why We Recommend it

Hosted by the Alliance Française Hong Kong, the Award-winning animated movie The Rabbi’s Cat (Le Chat du Rabbin, 2011) will be screened free of admission.


Set in 1920s Algiers, The Rabbi’s Cat tells the story of Rabbi Sfar, who has quite a lot of problems to deal with;  his beautiful daughter is becoming a teenager, his parrot-killing cat has suddenly gained the ability to talk and on top of that, a box with a painter from Russia arrives at his doorstep.

The painter is on a quest for a hidden tribe and its mythical city in Africa. Convinced that the city exists, he sets off on an incredible adventure, taking with him the Rabbi, his cat, a wise old Arab Sheikh and an eccentric Russian millionaire.

The Rabbi’s Cat has won a César Award–France’s equivalent of an Academy Award–for Best Animated Film in 2012.
