Cinedigm Entertainment Group announces the home entertainment release of “A Cat In Paris,” the 2012 Academy Award-nominated animated film from GKIDS.
Cinedigm Entertainment Group announced that A Cat In Paris, the Academy Award-nominated animated film from GKIDS, will make its cable, VOD, digital, DVD and Blu-ray debut on October 9.
From directors Jean-Loup Felicioli and Alain Gagnol and France’s renowned Folimage animation studio, A Cat In Paris is a beautifully hand-drawn caper set in the shadow-drenched alleyways of Paris. Dino is a cat that leads a double life. By day he lives with Zoë, a little girl whose mother is a detective in the Parisian police force. But at night Dino sneaks out the window to work with Nico – a slinky cat burglar with a big heart, whose fluid movements are poetry in motion as he evades captors and slips and swishes from rooftop to rooftop across the city skyline.
With the voices of Academy Award -winner Marcia Gay Harden (Mystic River), Academy Award-winner Anjelica Huston (The Royal Tenenbaums) and Matthew Modine (The Dark Knight Rises), A Cat In Paris is a delightful animated adventure, perfect for both adults and children – a witty and stylish “animated noir” with a jazzy soundtrack featuring Billie Holiday and a thrilling climax on top of Notre Dame cathedral.
Special bonus features on the DVD and DVD/Blu-ray discs include: “The Many Lives of a Cat” Video Flipbook; Extinction of the Saber-Toothed Housecat, an animated short distributed in U.S. theaters with A Cat In Paris; U.S. film trailer; and the original French-language version of the film with English subtitles.
