If you are looking for where you can get Felidae, either movie or books, this is the right place.
The one and only who can uncover the secret about
the mysterious psychotic murderer: Francis, the most well known
cat detective in the world among his kind in freedom. Doing his dangerous
researching and investigations for the cruel murders, the sleek cat detective
sinks more and more into a misty web of passions, sex, dreadful sect activities
and computer bytes..."
Francis's a cat, a cat detective, and right as we start off, his owner
Gustav Loebel is about to move off into a house in another city, taking
his cat with himself of course. Francis doesn't like moving at all. And
the new house being quite some kind of a ghostly castle's ruins is giving
him the creeps. It smells all like... medical stuff, dust, and dried blood.
Exploring the house and it's yard Francis soon finds himself a possible
friend - Bluebeard, one of the many other cats living in the new and yet
to explore area and it's neighbourhood. But the first glimpse at his surroundings
tell Francis that something awfully foul is going on here. As he finds
the first corpse in the backyard right on the day when he get's to see
the house - the trouble starts. Do the murders have something in common?
Was it a human maybe? Wouldn't be the first time...
Music has one of the most important roles in Felidae. Much like a character, or just like a character, the music tells the story and adds more feelings. Sometimes it gives me the creeps, makes me want to run away - sometimes it lulls me into harmony and happiness. Especially in Felidae however, the music's used to make you feel just how gloomy one must feel when in a murder situation like this. There's no cat police or something. The rules in Felidae are the real ones - and they're set. It's about life and death, and that is what the music lets you feel. The soundtrack is valuable since it's not been in hype production like with other movies. If you can't find one for you anywhere, sorry but then you'll very probably not get one anymore. Once I found one! Makes a great present, too =) ... Now, here are the songs on it in chronological order:
I might add Mp3 files (with low quality) sometime. First I have to check somewhere if that is okay, since to my information, no Felidae soundtracks are being produced and sold anymore since quite some time. We'll see. =) Email me immediately if you bought recently the soundtrack, tell me where you got it so I can include the info here!! Same goes for the english version of the movie, on video, dvd, whatever. Please tell me...

Now, you probably wonder how you'll get to see Felidae. If you do not live in germany it might be hard to find it in video stores, so good luck. However, there exists one US version of it, that I know for sure. It should be sold at video stores somewhere! If you know where exactly, please mail me about it immediately so I can include this information right here. Thank you very much! If you're curious about the US version (which is the same as in german, just different voices and some of the dialouge changed for english equalents) and you wanna know more about it, read on. Let me quote some words about what it's like, from a letter that my friend Sega wrote me(I leave personal things out, just what's in it about Felidae):
And why I think this movie is great...
Let me start off with what I don't like: The violence, the blood, and the cruelties. It makes me cry, because many think reality works that way. But reality is different. Love is reality =). This one movie is really red in tooth and claw, and one very well known one, too. Now for the positive side:The classical murder story which involves research and many seemingly weird or awfully normal characters fascinates many of us. As for me, Jammet, I do like this great movie very much, as it is very close to the book written by Akif Pirincci, who is by the way one very good (or the best) book author when it comes to CAT, and he has written a sequel to Felidae which has not (yet?) been planned as another animated movie. Francis the cat detective existed. But his name then was Cujo, and he lived around Akif Pirincci's house. There are very violent and scary and sad parts of the story. Nothing of the cruelties is hidden. The few humans who show up in the movie are mostly the 'doctors' of the experimental laboratory, and they're not doing anything nice. Yes the movie scared me! I do not want to watch movies that scare or disgust me. If Felidae wouldn't have such a fantastic storyline ... but it's not a flat movie like so many others. What makes Felidae different from many other animated movies is the fact that it has got a lot of adult content, even though it's for ages from 12 and up in germany. Don't ask me why. If I had been watching this movie at the age of twelve I think I would probably have died crying. The story is what makes Felidae so great! It's got quite a lot of complexity and it's own mysteries so listen carefully and remeber important things. =)
