[Das merkwürdige Kätzchen]

Ramon Zürcher's inventive debut film, a festival circuit favorite, finds the surreal humor inherent in the mundane details of the family home, closely observing three generations of a Berlin family gathered in their cramped apartment before a family meal. "The 30-year-old Zürcher appears to be channeling the comic maestros of French cinema here, from Jacques Tati to Michel Gondry, with just a twist of François Ozon to keep the sweetness in check." –Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter. New Talent Grand Prix, Copenhagen PIX Film Festival; Official Selection, 2013 Berlin, Cannes, San Francisco, Toronto Film Festivals.
