‘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 & 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.
