WHEN THE CAT'S AWAY/CHACUN CHERCHE SON CHAT
By Cédric Klapisch
1996 - France - 91 min

In French with English subtitles.

In the Bastille neighborhood, Chloé (Garance Clavel) shares a flat with her friend Michel (Olivier Py). When she decides to take a week away from Paris, she is in desperate need for a cat sitter for her black cat called Gris-Gris. Everybody she knows seems to want to steer clear of the cat sitting, and so Chloé is doomed to resort to Madam Renée’s help. When Chloé returns to Paris, she finds out that Gris-Gris has fled and is now lost in the city.

This film is the ideal opportunity to observe the transition from a “typical” Parisian borough to a young and trendy district. As Chloé meanders in her neighborhood looking for Gris-Gris, she meets several of its inhabitants, be they newcomers or long established. This is the story of one of Paris villages with its own unique atmosphere and outlook, something which is typical of Cédric Klapisch’s movies.

This screening is part of the film series Paris, a Hundred Villages.

Online registration is required for this screening.
