Minoes | Chicago Reader


After being exposed to chemicals from a deodorant factory, a young woman (Carice van Houten, appealingly naive) turns into a Siamese cat, Miss Minoes. If you can accept this fantastic conceit—whose logical implications are ignored as the story progresses—you'll probably enjoy this whimsical comedy from the Netherlands. Even in human form, Minoes still climbs up trees, prowls rooftops, hungers for fish, and engages in kitty talk, giving a shy reporter (Theo Maassen) scoops about the factory's unscrupulous owner that she picks up from gossiping cats. Her feline friends are skeptical of people, and their wisecracks are among the charms offered by Tamara Bos's script. Director Vincent Bal handles the action scenes with winking humor (the bad guy driven mad by cats is a hoot), and the budding love between Minoes and the reporter is played with considerable tenderness. In Dutch with subtitles. 88 min.
