Cat Person

Susanna Fogel, USA, France 2023, 118’
Brainwashed: Sex-Camera-Power Killers of the Flower Moon

Twenty-year-old Margot meets an older, attractive Robert at the movies. On the second date, however, the girl experiences disappointment, and their relationship takes a dramatic turn. The film offers an unusual mix of thriller and comedy and asks questions about the status of male-female relationships.
