About the Movie

Hundreds of thousands of cats roam the metropolis of Istanbul freely. For thousands of years, they’ve wandered in and out of people’s lives, becoming an essential part of the communities that make the city so rich. Claiming no owners, these animals live between two worlds, neither wild nor tame – and they bring joy and purpose to those people they choose to adopt. In Istanbul, cats are the mirrors to the people, allowing them to reflect on their lives in ways nothing else could.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: By the time "Kedi" puts these animals through their paces, only one essential question remains unanswered: Will the dogs of the Dardanelles demand equal exposure? This could be a trend. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Feb 16, 2017

Fresh: Those who don't especially like cats - or Istanbul, for that matter - might not get a lot out of Turkish director Ceyda Torun's love letter to the feline population of her native city. For everyone else, it should be an almost unadulterated pleasure. – Peter Keough, Boston Globe, Feb 23, 2017

Fresh: "Kedi" is the cat's meow. Literally. – Adam Graham, Detroit News, Mar 17, 2017

Fresh: At 80 minutes, Torun's film feels a bit overlong, but it is as soft and warm as a kitten. – Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Mar 2, 2017

I love Cats and I love Cat Movies. This one looks good to me :)

Cats in our world

I went to go see this in theatre and have to say this is an absolute masterpiece for cat and animal lover's. There are so many cats with different personalities. They have learned to adapt and live in our ever changing chaotic human world. I loved seeing all of the different cats and how others have come to embrace them. Animals can help show us the simple joys in life. I hope to travel to istanbul someday to experience how cats live in a city. For now I will embrace and love my own cat.


Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. I was surprised to see how these cats are so intertwined into the lives of the inhabitants of Istanbul and the love and devotion given to these cats. If you are a cat lover this is a must see movie.
