Curiosity & the Cat movie scenes NEW Curiosity Updates from Science Team Members

Curiosity & the Cat is a German crime-drama-thriller directed by Christian Alvart starring Konstantin Graudus, Detlef Lutz, Andreas Erfurth and Nadeshda Brennicke.

Contents

Plot

A German writer gets curious about the violent and sado-masochistic ongoings in his neighbour's apartments and drills holes in the walls to gain more insight. He becomes consumed by his curiosity for their seemingly more interesting lives, simultaneously neglecting his relationship with his British girlfriend.

Production

The film was shot in Berlin.

The tagline for the film was "Watch Your Neighbor".

Henri is seen washing himself several times in the movie usually by Christian Alvart's typical shot: He is reflected by three mirrors, effectively showing him four times from all angles.

Aphex Twin's song Come to Daddy is used twice in the film.

The legal disclaimer reads: "Die hier dargestellten Personen und Ereignisse beruhen allein auf den Auswüchsen eines kranken Geistes und sind so nie passiert. Alle Übereinstimmungen mit real Personen oder Geschehnissen sind zufällig und haben nix zu bedeuten." [The persons and events depicted here are solely based on the excrecences of a sick mind and never have happened this way. All correspondences with real persons or events are coincidental and actually mean nothing]. And further: "Bei den Dreharbeiten zu diesem Film sind weder Tiere noch kleine Kinder zu Schaden gekommen." [Neither animals nor small children were harmed during the making of this film].
