Synopsis: 

Opening in 1920s Algeria, this endlessly imaginative animated wonder features a cat who eats a parrot, gains the ability to speak, engages in philosophical debates with a rabbi and undertakes a cross-continental quest. Based on Joann Sfar’s comic book series, The Rabbi’s Cat is a luxuriously animated tale of tolerance, told with inspired eccentricity.
