The Cassandra Cat
(Až přijde kocour)
A film by Vojtěch Jasný
Czechoslovakia, 1963



Vojtěch Jasný's sumptuous, surreal satire is one of the most visually inventive and uninhibited films of the Czechoslovak New Wave.


A travelling circus and its magical feline mascot arrive in a provincial Czech town, unleashing mayhem as they expose the virtues, vices and desires of its unruly inhabitants.


Part modern fairy tale, part colourful political metaphor, The Cassandra Cat (also known as When the Cat Comes) is a unique, glorious comic fantasy. Now newly restored in 4K, this Cannes award-winner makes its world premiere on Blu-ray.


Our Blu-ray also includes the acclaimed and delightful animated short film Badly Painted Hen by Jiří Brdečka, co-writer of The Cassandra Cat.


“Charm, artistry and daring...
The film is beautifully photographed... Jasny's technique is both subtle and dramatic”
