Japan-Cuts Movie: Rent-A-Cat
Last night I went to Japan-Cuts at the Japan Society, the Japanese film festival, and I saw Rent-A-Cat. Such a sweet and charming movie. Really funny, the actress is adorable and quirky and the kitties are all little stars. The movie is about a young woman, who's been living by herself for two years after her grandmother passed away with a house full of cats. She walks around the park with a cart full of cats and kittens to rent to lonely people. The cats fill the "hole" in their lives and she gets to interact with other lonely people like herself. She has a tranny neighbor who is constantly making fun of her, she tries to beat the heat in odd ways, she also has multiple weird jobs aside from renting cats. She lives in the most adorable Japanese house. The movie is visually beautiful and highly entertaining. I really recommend watching it when it is publicly released, or comes to your area. Here are some stills and the trailer, unfortunately I couldn't find the english subtitle one.
