The film based on ”L’Atalante” (1934) by Jean Vigo focuses on the scenes in which cats appear. The artist/painter Harald V Uccello manufactured 140 drawings of them. The young actor Anton von Lucke speaks the original dialogues off-camera. The musician Tobias Giezendanner rearranges the music of Maurice Jaubert and plays it on the bandoneon off-camera as well. The film is a representational discourse between cinema, painting, music and poetry.
