Anime DVD Review

Not since Pi have we seen anything that twisted our perception of reality quite like this. Anyone who's suffered a really good hallucinogenic experience will immediately identify with Cat Soup.

Winner of the "Best Short Film" at The 6th Fantasia Film Festival and "Excellence Prize" at Japan's Media Arts Festival, Cat Soup features the psychedelic imagery of the late artist Nekojiru. From the director of Nadesico, Tatsuo Sato's Cat Soup tells the story of a little kitten, Nyaako, who embarks on a bizarre journey with her brother Natta, to get her soul back, which has been stolen by Death. In the surreal dreamscape of the Other Side, they encounter many fantastic characters and embark on various remarkable and disturbing adventures.

Central Park Media has done a good job reworking the film with subtitles, as the few bits of dialog in the film are done as word balloons. Although children may enjoy it, it does contain some ghastly imagery, so take it with a grain of salt.
