Time & Tickets

Meet pet pig Frans, who jumps in and out of the trunk over and over again, ready for a trip to a nice park. Meet a barber with a house full of hairless cats. A champion dog-dancing, a spiritual slug and a world-famous Instagram cat.

M’N BEESSIE EN IK is an endearing portrait of several owners. What connects the owners is the boundless love for their animal, but also the apparent emptiness they are trying to fill. A divorce, a baby on the way, autism, death, the search for a partner or the meaning of life; in their pets the owners find a listening ear. The film subtly plays with the boundaries of friendship and interdependence within human-animal relationships. Who exactly needs who?

Johan Kramer, Netherlands, 2022, 76 min. Dutch spoken, without subtitles.
