i finally got to watch this movie after waiting so long! Rent-a-cat is a quaint little Japanese film that came out last year. just like my other favourites, its a quiet life-movie with room for breathing and thought. but of course, the love of cats is well played in this one!
it plays on the term "crazy cat lady" but with a more thoughtful outlook on a quirky young woman who uses her cats to mend lonely hearts. as much as this film is a comedy, with very colourful characters, it also came across to me as a very lonely film... it goes through different types of "loneliness-es" and living situations that many people face in reality. so this movie is a nice reminder that no matter who you are in life: young or old & rich and poor, everyone has some sort of hole in their heart that needs filling.
you can watch the film here! and i hope you enjoy it as much as i did! :-3
