The film explores “deeper meaning of the trivial in this droll narrative centered on a seemingly uneventful day in the life of a Berlin family.”
Here’s just how uneventful the day is: “Siblings Karin and Simon return home to visit their parents and younger sister and to help prepare dinner for their extended family. Events unfold leisurely, but with plenty of underlying and unstated tensions inevitable in a flat overstuffed with a mother, father, children, grandmother and cat. The eponymous ginger feline offers consolation and possibly the film’s point of view.”
