THE STRANGE LITTLE CAT

Director: RAMON ZÜRCHER

72 minutes, Germany, 2013, Subtitled, Colour, Blu-ray


A minimalist delight that has played the international festival circuit to huge acclaim, Ramon Zürcher’s debut is the study of a family pottering around the kitchen of their Berlin apartment as they prepare for guests to arrive for dinner.

The strength of the film is in its details – Zürcher packs the slight running time with clever dialogue, carefully framed images and choreographed movement around the limited space, and unexpected, sometimes odd touches, all of which serve to create a portrait of a family that is readily identifiable and truly universal, and a pleasure to spend this time with.

This is screening as part of IFI Kinofest, a celebration of German cinema presented in partnership with Goethe-Institut Irland, October 10th – 13th.
