The Rabbi's Cat is a French Animated comedy, but you should not let this fool you; it is intended for a mature audience and there are mature themes to boot. The story revolves around a cat who, upon eating his masters parrot, suddenly gains the gift of speech. He is hilarious, and the things he says are often much more insightful than any of his human companions; additionally, this movie does not pull any punches. There are two deaths, both of which are very violent. Racism, religious strife, and marriage are all examined.The visual style of this movie was superb, and there are a number of highly stylized, almost delirious sequences. Overall, this is an excellent film and I highly recommend.

Best part of story, including ending:
The way that it tackle such mature themes in an animated movie
Best scene in story:
The rabbi is reading the story of creation to the cat, and the cat says that the world is billions of years old and that the creation story can't be taken literally. There is something very humorous about a rabbi being lectured on science by a talking cat.
Opinion about the main character:
The cat is a very insightful and intelligent individual, and he is consistently more intelligent than his human companions.
