A Cat in Paris 2012 Movie HD Video Free Download

With U.S. animation completely overtaken by computers, it’s more than refreshing to see this old-school hand-drawn export from France: It’s exhilarating. Titled A Cat in Paris for English-speaking and -reading audiences (although its French title, Une Vie de Chat, translates as A Cat’s Life), this cartoon noir distills Hitchcock into 64 brisk minutes for middle-schoolers and up.

In case the stylized, non-computer-generated imagery didn’t tip you off to the fact that you’re not watching an American film, there are several other signs. Most notably, Dino, the titular cat, never speaks, except to meow or hiss. Meanwhile, we’re not subjected to excessive cartoon violence without consequence, but we do see a cartoon penis. (It belongs to a statue.) The only other time we’ve seen one of those was the quick cameo by Bart’s wiener in The Simpsons Movie.
