Plot Synopsis: Based on the bestselling graphic novel by Joann Sfar, award-winning filmmaker (Gainsbourg) and one of France s most celebrated comic artists, THE RABBI S CAT tells the story of a sharp-tongued feline philosopher brimming with scathing humor. Algeria in the 1930s is an intersection of Jewish, Arab and French culture. A cat belonging to a widowed rabbi and his beautiful daughter eats the family parrot and miraculously gains the ability to speak. Along with the power of speech comes unparalleled sardonic wit, and the cat spares no group or individual as it skewers faith, tradition and authority in a provocative exploration of God, death, lust and the search for truth. Rich with the colors, textures, flavors and music of Mediterranean Africa, the film embarks on a cross-continent comedic adventure through colonial Algiers and under vast Saharan skies in search of a lost Ethiopian city.
