Occasionally, I attend a festival and a film just blows me away!
Such was the case with – CatCam – a short film about a stray cat that a pleasant young couple take in one day in their upscale neighborhood.
When Mr. Lee disappears from the neighborhood one fine day, his new owners are curious about where he trots off to for hours-on-end.
Does he have a second life elsewhere?
Maybe he has a furry feline friend that he secretly meets up with on the grounds somewhere?
Juergen (the pet’s owner) is so intrigued by the possibilities that he rustles up a miniature camera to hang around the cat’s neck – to take stills – while he’s out on his prowl into the great unknown beyond the boundaries of their property.
The results are quite surprising!
But, I won’t spoil it for ‘ya.
CatCam is a well-crafted original short which delights.
A must-see for cat lovers!
By the way, Mr. Lee has a natural acting style, and a mesmerizing screen presence!
Vastly entertaining, too.
It is not often that a film takes me by surprise or leaves me smiling ear-to-ear as I trot out of the theatre.
The charming story was directed by Seth Keal who produced an another project you may be familiar with:
Joan Rivers: A piece of Work.
CatCam is his directorial debut.
