She and her cat


She and Her Cat: Their Standing Points depicts the chosen solidarity between the two characters (the girl and the cat) against everything outside their room. Though they interact and go about their daily life as any normal living things, their dependence within their own world gives the movie a deep meaning against the simple harshness of urban life.



There is no underlying plot as most of the movie is seen from the black and white perspective of the cat, of how he sees and adores his mistress and adds color to his world through colorful poetic musings of his observations together with the simple but endearing piano scoring similar to those you often hear from art films.

The visuals may not be appreciated by everyone but the overall atmosphere of the movie pulls on some heartstrings and is definitely worth the time to see.

Makoto Shinkai. One of my favorite anime directors. This was his first production, he animated it himself and had his fiance do the voice acting with him. He had a friend who owns an electronics store do the music.

After this he went on to do Voices of a Distant Star. Again with him, his fiance, and his friend. It won awards and got him recognised and was then able to do Beyond the Clouds a Place Promised in our Early Days, one of my favorite movies.

People compare his works to that of Hayao Miyazaki. He has been called the new Miyazaki in several reviews.

She and Her Cat was a very deep short, and yet was able to invoke emotions that some people couldn't do with hours of screen time. Makoto is very, very talented.

It's very strange that all of his movies deal with loneliness, isolation, and a somehow lost love. He must be a very sad person, or had some troubles in his childhood.

Also, he has a new movie coming out soon.

I'm amazed by the debt of his patience. XD To do such masterpiece all alone.

o_O I never heard of him, but I'm glad I did. But that seems like an interesting concept, the perspective and such.

I've never heard of this movie. Is this the same director that created Beyond the Clouds? I'm surprised I've failed to see this. I'm going to have to go find it somewhere.

Watched it on you tube. Whoa!
It's like a nostalgic poem and it really plays on a lot of your memory of senses and sounds (even smells, since it's referenced in there quite a bit), making it fit into your own experiences rather intimately (if at all. Guess there's a chance it doesn't really hit with you, right?) It's a nice little sensory piece, especially since it also presents quite a range of solitude emotions. And in the end, the deadpan line, "I think we like it" (this world.) It's the kind of thing you might think when you've had a dull day, but then you're driving down the road past fields and rolling hills, and it's amazing and beautiful and you realize you really like the world.
