Where There are Cats, There is Fun

Finding Calico 

(107mins, 2015)

Directed by Yoshihiro Fukagawa

In Japanese with English subtitles

About the Movie:

A drama inspired by non-fiction book “Maigo no Miechan: Chiiki Neko to Shotengai Saisei no Monogatari” (Mie the Stray: A Story of Community Cats and Shopping Street Revitalization) about a search for a feline. Yoshihiro Fukagawa (In His Chart) directs.

Kyoichi Morii (Ogata Issey), a retired school principal, lives alone after the death of his wife. One day, the strait-laced and narrow-minded Morii is visited by Mie, the stray cat his late spouse loved. He tries to shoo her away, but when she suddenly fails to show up, he gets worried and begins to look for her.
