Le Chat du rabbin

35 mmFrenchEnglish

Alger, 1920s. Rabbi Sfar lives with his daughter Zlabya, a noisy parrot and a mischievous cat who, after having eaten the parrot, starts to speak only lies. The rabbi wants to send him away, but the cat will do anything to stay with Zlabya... even perform his bar mitzvah! The rabbi will have to teach his cat the basics of Mosaic law! To help his master keep his job, the cat commits the sacrilege of invoking the Eternal and loses the use of speech. He is treated again as an ordinary animal. His only friend, a Russian painter in search of an imaginary Jerusalem where black Jews would live, manages to convince the rabbi, a former soldier of the Tsar, a singer and the cat to go on the colonial road with him... Adaptation of the comic strip by Joan Sfar
