All Cats Are Grey in the Dark

TIFF 2019: All Cats Are Grey in the Dark Review

Thanks to Highball.TV for sponsoring ThatShelf’s 2019 TIFF Coverage!

Middle-aged Christian lives with his two cats Marmelade and Katjuscha, and his affection for them is enough to make even the biggest cat lover feel uncomfortable (when I say he takes them everywhere, I mean it). Writer/director Lasse Linder’s short follows Christian as he tries to get Marmelade impregnated by a tomcat, and at first watching Christian’s intense love of felines makes for a good, eccentric comedy. But as Linder jumps forward through time, and we follow Christian all the way up to Marmelade giving birth, the film transforms into a compassionate character study of one man’s quest for his own version of a family.
