DVD/Blu-ray: A Cat in Paris (PG)


Another old-fashioned slice of Gallic whimsy that could have made in the Fifties.

This Oscar-nominated animation centres on a groovy mog, Dino, who belongs to a grieving girl (whose father was murdered by a hoodlum, Costa, who in the dubbed version sounds like Roy Hodgson) and an affable cat burglar. It lacks Pixar's wit and visual splendour, but its simplicity is appealing and it darts along at a fair lick.
