"Cat Soup" was a strange, but at the same time, incredibly fascinating short.
Despite the childish (But beautifully done) artwork, this short isn't aimed to kids, instead of that, this is a surreal, dark tale of fantasy that involves lots of strange scenes and situations.
Some of the weirdness form this movie could seem gratuitous and completely devoid of sense, but that's the main reason why I liked it:In many ways this anime short reminded me a lot the Luis Buñuel's short "Un Chien Andalou", which, like "Cat Soup" was filled with nonsensical, dream-like situations.
"Cat Soup" is an unpredictable, twisted and beautiful animation. And despite the cute appearance of the main characters, it is a very complex and mature example of animated surrealism.
