Old Cats
Filmfest 2011

OLD CATS Isadora and Enrique, an elderly couple, live a comfortable life with their two ample cats in a handsome high-rise apartment overlooking the park. Isadora is struggling with a bout of dementia when her daughter, Rosario, and her butch female lover, Hugo, drop in for a coked-up visit to pitch their latest get-rich scheme—and attempt to snatch the flat right out from under Isadora. Then Isadora does something quite unexpected for a woman with a busted hip, and everything changes. "Drawing pitch-perfect performances from a brilliant cast, Silva and Peirano have crafted a splendid film filled with the pathos and black humor found in treacherous mother-daughter relationships..."
