Absolutely Beautiful

Sometimes cute; sometimes funny; sometimes melancholic; sometimes philosophical, though always an accurate portrayal of our four legged friends; Kedi is a hidden gem. Regardless of your religion, race or culture, there is something there for everyone, and despite Istanbul being a city that is different in many ways, the themes and ideals explored are universal. Just like cats give us warmth, companionship and a sensation of being appreciated; this film accomplishes that same unique sensation. Focusing on the lives of seven cats, each with their own unique personality and characteristics, the documentary equally showcases how the people and the environments react to their presence. Those interviewed provide in-depth narration on their experiences, thoughts and feelings, which will truly remind you of human decency. It is nothing short of amazing. Though cats are occasionally tagged as lazy and ungrateful, with wild cats often viewed as a nuisance, this documentary shows the interesting lives these felines have. Every day, all of them have places to go and people to see, the feature giving us the time to pause, reflect, and notice how alike we are. The camerawork is fantastic, allowing us to track and follow all of the four legged friends which appear, from the winding alleyways, to the balconies which overlook the city streets, and the innumerable food stores, the camera going places you may never have thought of, to provide us an in-depth look into the lives of these many cats. The accompanying musical score is easy-going and memorable, like a catchy jingle, and really sets the tone. This is not a sombre documentary; it's a joyful one, though at the same time, reminds us to be mindful of how we treat the environment, lest these cats suffer. If I had any complaints about the documentary, it would be the length. As a proud lover of anything on four legs, the feature, which goes for just over an hour, felt more like a taste, than a main course, and it would have been great to see more of our seven friends, some of whom are provided more attention than others. That been said, from play-fighting through to territorial disputes; from jealousy through to adoration; from kittens to full grown adults; this documentary has it all.

This film was wonderful and uplifting. First off, I am a cat lover. This film was a treat for me. Gorgeously filmed in Istanbul. I read a lot of the reviews here and one reviewer said it was about love. I agree with that. There are many things you could say this film is about. First and foremost it is about the connection the people have with these cats in this city. Most of these cats are wild. People feed them. There are a lot of caring people in the film that rescue them. People in the film express their personal stories about the cats or what they think of them. I just loved it. I highly recommend it if your a cat lover or an animal lover.

I really wanted to like this..but alas - No! A documentary about the status of cats on the streets of Instanbul. Just watch Animal Planet. They have several shows about cats!
