Rabbi's cat (Le Chat du Rabbin) wins the César

Le Chat du Rabbin (Joann Sfar, Antoine Delesvaux) diirected by the director of Gainsbourg, is set in 1920, and tells the story of Rabbi Sfar, his beautiful teenage daughter and his parrot-killing cat that has just started talking.

Rabbi's cat competed against the feature-length film Le tableau (The painting) by Jean-François Laguionie, the belle-epoque film A monster in Paris (Bibo Bergeron) and the short films Le Cirque (Nicolas Braault) and La queue de la souris (Benjamin Renner).
