New York Film Festival 2010: Old Cats (2010)


Old Cats may not be much as cinema, but its clear-eyed, empathetic understanding of the agonies of aging and the frustrations of familial relations is nevertheless worth noting and celebrating.

That's the clincher I wrote for my latest New York Film Festival post at The House Next Door, a review of Old Cats (2010), a Chilean comedy-drama that overcomes its general lack of compelling cinematic qualities to become oddly moving. By all means, read the rest of my review...but that line basically summarizes my overall reaction to the film, which is, I think, worth seeing.

Second-to-last (I think) blog post at The House, methinks...
