The Rabbi's Cat Blu-ray

Posted December 27, 2012 03:09 PM by Webmaster

New Video GroupNew Video Group has revealed that it is planning to bring to Blu-ray directors Antoine Delesvaux and Joann Sfar's award-winning animated film Le chat du rabbin a.k.a The Rabbi's Cat (2011). The preliminary release date set by the studio is April 9th.

In 2011, The Rabbi's Cat was nominated for Best Animated Film at the European Film Awards. Earlier this year, the film won Cesar Award (French Oscar) for Best Animated Film.

Official synopsis: Based on the best-selling graphic novel by Joann Sfar, The Rabbi's Cat tells the story of a rabbi and his talking cat a sharp-tongued feline philosopher brimming with scathing humor and a less than pure love for the rabbi's voluptuous teenage daughter.

Algeria in the 1930s is an intersection of Jewish, Arab and French culture. A cat belonging to a widowed rabbi and his beautiful daughter, Zlabya, eats the family parrot and miraculously gains the ability to speak. Along with the power of speech comes unparalleled sardonic wit, and the cat and filmmaker Sfar spare no group or individual as they skewer faith, tradition and authority in a provocative exploration of (among other things) God, lust, death, phrenology, religious intolerance, interspecies love, and the search for truth. Rich with the colors, textures, flavors and music of Mediterranean Africa, the film embarks on a cross continent adventure from the tiled terraces, fountains, quays and cafes of colonial Algiers to Maghrebi tent camps, dusty trading outposts, and deep blue Saharan nights in search of a lost Ethiopian city.

I suspect I'm the only one here who has read the comic that this is based on (I haven't seen the film), so I should at least chime in on that score. The comics are wonderful -- they're like an Isaac Bashevis Singer story rendered as a graphic novel -- and if the movie is anything like it, I'll be very happy. Checking this one out as soon as it hits.
