Cat in the Wall is a politically incorrect comedy drama set on a London council estate.  A Bulgarian family fights its neighbours living on benefits over the ownership of an abandoned cat. As the conflict flares up the viewers can see an unusual side of Great Britain currently torn by contradictions. Everyday racism and astronomic bills imposed by the local council aggravate the community. The supposedly stray cat that has had enough of the heated atmosphere barricades itself ‘in the wall’, requiring the residents to collaborate.

 

“This timely immigrants’ eye view of the UK certainly feels like a story which needed to be told. What’s particularly striking is the authenticity of British working class voices, something that UK cinema sometimes struggles to get right.”

Wendy Ide, “Screen International”

 

“There’s no wonder that the Brits are for Brexit, when two Bulgarian women directors steal the job of the working class hero Ken Loach.”

Michael Sennhauser, Germany

 

“Wonderful and direct irony almost like in a Billy Wilder film for people, living on benefits, Brexit and much more.”

Luigi Locatelli, “Cinema Nuovo”
