The Cat Vanishes
When Beatriz picks up her husband Luis from the sanatorium, she is not quite sure if she should believe his psychiatrist’s pronouncement that he is fully cured. An Argentinian movie part of the City to City series.
Simplistic story has the audience not sure if Luis is cured either. But we don't really care since he's not a very personable character. At the Q & A the director told us he got the cat to "act" angry by putting a dog off camera. Most of the actors sleep-walked through the movie. The "surprise" ending is not so much of a surprise. Was supposed to be an attempt at a movie in the "thriller" genre. Not very convincing.
