Great film, which makes you laugh out loud and cry moments later
16 May 2013 | by bourkejennySee all my reviews

Dead Cat is one of those rare films which make you think, laugh out loud and cry all within moments of each other. It also showcases London and the amazingly talented young people who made the film on a shoestring budget. The main theme of the film is about a couple who realize the relationship they

lost as teenagers was perhaps the one they should have stayed with. But the sub plots are also really involving, focusing on identity issues and searching for that important other in ones life. The scenes by the river are so funny that the whole cinema was laughing. To sum up it is tender, funny and thoughtful and a must see movie.
