Still from 'A Cat in Paris'

One of the 2012 Oscar contenders for Best Animated Feature, the NYTimes described this novel and delightful French confection as “a nifty little caper in which blustery gangsters, intrepid detectives, cat burglars (one of them literally feline) and a little girl named Zoé scamper across nighttime rooftops unraveling a pleasantly tangled plot.”

All this in a style that looks like a cross between Picasso and Matisse, with a jazz soundtrack by Serge Besset. Also nominated for a César Award, European Film Award and Annie Award.
