The Strange Little Cat

Siblings Karin (Anjorka Strechel) and Simon (Luk Pfaff) visit their parents and their little sister for dinner. What follows is a seemingly ordinary series of domestic scenes set inside a claustrophobic Berlin apartment. What director Ramon Zürcher records is simply the comings and goings of people, the ebbs and flows of conversations, the humor and drama of everyday domestic life. With its odd framing and digressive flashbacks, the film paints a most unusual family portrait. In German with English subtitles. 79 minutes Unrated.
