a cat in paris (un vie de chat) - jean -loup felicioli and alain gagnol

I'm a sucker for the old school foreign animation style, and 'A Cat In Paris' ticked the boxes for me.  A young girls cat goes out at night following and assisting a burglar, but the girl, the cat and the burglar get caught up in a crime lords plot to steal a rare artifact.  There are some laugh out loud moments, it's surreal in parts, and the size of the shoes have to be seen to be believed.  Did l mention the girls mother is trying to catch the crime lord, as she is in the police, and he killed her partner (the girls father).  If you enjoyed stuff like 'The Pink Panther Show' cartoons when you were a kid (and l did), you'll certainly derive pleasure from this little beauty.  I don't know why they had to change the title from 'Un Vie De Chat' (The life of a cat), but l guess it was probably thought (by some think-tank or committee) that putting 'Paris' in the title would encourage more people to check it out.  Never mind, at least it is worth checking out, whatever it is called.
