      (Japan, 2012) Dir.: Naoko Ogigami

      Sayoko rents out cats. Every day she walks along the banks of the river towing her animals in a little handcart, with a parasol to shade her against the heat and a megaphone over her mouth: “Cats for rent! Are you lonely? Why not rent a cat?” Delighted, a father says, “For a cat won’t mind if I smell like an old man.” “Oh, yes,” chimes in an employee at a car rental company, “I really am all alone.” Sayoko’s cat rental helps lonely people fill the emptiness in their hearts. But Sayoko is also lonely. Ever since her grandmother’s death she has lived with the cats in an overgrown haven in the midst of the big city where all she hears – apart from the cats meowing – are her eccentric neighbor’s insults. One day, a young man turns up from Sayoko’s past. He follows her home and all at once Sayoko’s life seems to fall apart.
