When a young worker receives a terminal diagnosis, he makes a deal with the devil (who is in fact his doppelgänger): for each additional day of life the man is granted, the devil will remove one worldly delight. Each of the ensuing losses, especially the cat he inherits from his mother, radically alters the man’s life history. If Cats Disappeared from the World (Sekai kara Neko ga Kieta nara) mixes fantasy and emotion with a deeper philosophical inquiry. (Akira Nagai, 2016, subtitles, 100 minutes)
