‘I am a cat. As yet, I have no name’. So begins the chronicles of Nana, a stray cat who has adopted its own master, Satoru, as he sets out to revisit friends from his past, with a request that Nana doesn’t yet understand. Partly narrated by Nana herself and based on the enormously successful Japanese novel by Hiro Arikawa, THE TRAVELLING CAT CHRONICLES is a humorous and tender exploration of how small acts of kindness and sacrifice can make a difference in the unexpected events of people’s lives.
Starring Sôta Fukushi, Mitsuki Takahata, Nana
Awards and Reviews
Fantasia Film Festival, Tokyo Intl Film Festival, Leeds Intl Film Festival Official Selections
“It offers a more substantial narrative, more striking imagery and more sophisticated technique than, say, bizarre crossovers, such as Samurai Cat or Neko Ninja, or the cellphone-game-turned-movie Neko Atsume House.” – The Hollywood Reporter
“It’s a movie that we need right now, to remind us to be strong, and to retain positivity, no matter what the world throws at us.” – Birth.Movies.Death.
THE TRAVELLING CAT CHRONICLES is unrated – 18+ only will be allowed in the theatre.
