Sunday Catinee: Le Chat Triste

I have a foreign film for you today. Don’t worry, there are subtitles! Narrated by the handsome Henri, it proves two things:

1) Tous nous des chats parlent fran├žais. (All of us cats speak French.)
2) Everything is more meaningful in black and white, and in French.

If you can’t see the above video, click here to watch on YouTube!

Henri’s first film is here, but for my kibble, the second one is the best. Henri also has a Facebook page, in case you would like to “like” him. Although he’s called “Henri le Chat Noir,” he is really Henri, le Chat Noir et Blanc.

    Henri, je t’aime! Sparkle can you introduce me to Henri? I would love to join him at deux margots to discuss Sartre and Camus over catnip tea.

    That video made Mom laugh out loud. That was terrific. He sounds like a cousin of yours Sparkle. Trying to get that human trained. Take care.

  3. says

    That’s wonderful. I especially like the delivery of the narrator. It sounds so typical of French tragedy. You’d know what was going on even without the subtitles.

    The Human’s cousin who is indifferent to les chats but who went to film school sended her these this week. I don’t understand why Henri is so triste–isn’t being a Chat the ultimate rung on the great ladder of being (or the strongest link in the chain or whatever stoopid Human metaphor that is)???

    Oh the ennui!

    Julie recognized the “Sani Clip” she is subjected to! The cold hearted mom just laughed, and at Henri too! Especially about being surrounded by morons!

  6. Selina says

    Ahh French cinema & existentialism! Where would we be without either? We went back to watch the first one, as well. He’s terrific! Thanks for sharing, Sparkle!

    Thanks for posting, Sparkle, the video is great, we loved it!

    Your kind thoughts recently, following our news about BonBon crossing over Rainbow Bridge are much appreciated.
    We got to know him late in his life when he came to live with us three years ago at the age of 13. He seemed happy here and quickly became a cherished and loved family member.

    Thank you from all of us,
    Mindy, Moe, Cookie, Mike and mombean Nina
