Kat Hughes THN The Shadow of the Cat is a wonderfully bizarre, family-centered crime caper that finds its humour amongst the madness and works as an insanely enjoyable telenovela. Rated: 3/5 Jan 17, 2022 Full Review Emiliano Basile EscribiendoCine The story wanders from one register to another and clashes with its own impossible pretensions. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 4/10 Jan 5, 2022 Full Review Jennie Kermode Eye for Film It's all very handsomely shot, with a feisty soundtrack and ebullient sense of humour, but too often it feels as if it's just being quirky for the sake of it. Rated: 2.5/5 Nov 30, 2021 Full Review Anton Bitel VODzilla.co [in this] tale of two extended families... what at first seems a relatively simple scenario becomes ever more hallucinatory, so that by the end the viewer will be left unsure where they are and who (or indeed what) is real.
