Christian lives with his two cats Marmelade and Katjuscha. As he is yearning to become a father, he decides to fertilize his beloved cat Marmelade by an exquisite tomcat from abroad.
In a mise-en-scène that echoes works by Roy Andersson and Ulrich Seidl, we follow the daily life of a solitary but not so ordinary man − he shares his life with his two loving cats, with whom he’s formed a great bond and is on track of building a real family with them, so to speak. Are we in front of an observational documentary about a weird man, or has Lasse Linder been able to find two beautiful and perfectly trained cat-actors?
Locarno is ...
… living La Dolce Vita in Switzerland.
