I’m afraid “Are We Not Cats” turned out to be too weird for me. It also lacked content. There was hardly any noteworthy story, which made it rather tedious. Granted, it was well shot and acted, and I liked both lead characters, but what good does that do when I have to fight to keep awake while watching it? Seriously, would a little bit of story have hurt? Probably because of that, it moves at a leisurely pace. As a short film it might have worked, but as it is, it dragged along aim- and endlessly. There were a couple of nice moments thrown into the mix here and there, but overall, I was mostly bored by it. And don’t even let me get started on the completely bonkers (and unrealistic) surgery scene. I really find it hard to think about anything to say in regards to “Are We Not Cats”, due to its lack in story. There simply wasn’t anything interesting going on. If you’re into very indie films about offbeat romances that rely more on tone than narrative, you might want to give this one a try. I for one, however, really struggled to not fall asleep.
