*gasp, Pant* out of all films this is the one I had to censor the most

(WARNING THIS FILM IS NOT FO KIDS AND VERY VIOLENTE DO NOT BE FOOLED BY HOW INNOCENT THIS LOOKS)

The film is in a large part a cartoon cat version of Thomas Pynchon's novel The Crying of Lot 49 (which t.o.L have acknowledged as an influence),[5] with elements of Fritz Lang's Metropolis and Oscar Wilde's The Happy Prince. It begins in Meguro City, Tokyo, Cat Earth, a world of corporations and commercialism, where a giant mechanical Colonel Sanders wanders through streets with an axe embedded in its head repeating an advertisement for meat over a loudspeaker. Tamala, bored with the city, leaves her human foster mother and boards a spaceship bound for her birthplace, Orion (while leaving Cat Earth, Tamala's ship passes by a satellite that is reminiscent of Mike Jittlov's Mickey Mouse satellite). Her ship is shot down by the Mysterious Postcat, and she lands on Planet Q in Hate City. There she meets a male cat, Michelangelo, who becomes her boyfriend. While visiting a museum, Tamala discovers a mural detailing the sacrificial rituals of members of the ancient Minerva religion, and the ruins of a statue of a female cat named Tatla. On another date, the couple is pursued by Kentauros, a sadistic dog (German sheperd to be accurate) dressed as a motorcycle cop. He eats Tamala while Michelangelo watches from a tree (unknown to Michelango at the time she survived). The film then changes tone, focusing for a while on a presentation given by Professor Nominos on the history of CATTY & Co. He reveals that the company is an offshoot of the Minerva religion, and that Tamala was born in 1869 to be their mascot. The presentation is gradually interrupted by an attack and the room is burned. He appears to die in the fire but returns, in an undead form, and approaches Michelangelo, telling him of Tamala's history. Tamala, meanwhile, meets with Tatla, and comes to the realization that both of them are the reincarnation of Minerva. She returns to Hate city (much to Michelangelo's surprise), and continues her voyage to Orion, accompanied by the mouse Penelope, a former slave for Kentauros.

In my opinion this films plot is intresting (the history of that one cult) and dusturbing at the same time I mean it looks so innocent but it is not so here let explain to you

Tamala 2010: A Punk Cat in Space Room310

This is a screen shot from the film does it look like a innocent kiddy film? This is you to decied but I thought it was. Any how this film is computer animated in both 2D and 3D, and is mostly black and white. This may be a concidence but the chacters look like they were made by the company Sanrio who is famous for making Hello Kitty. Eather way I hope those two (Tamala and Penelope) don't come back to hate city any time soon. To sum it all up it is Made of mature aduence but it looks so cutesy.

Tamala 2010: A Punk Cat in Space Empty

I will now give you the opinion of the japanese movie critics ( I'm a critic too)

The product of an artist group called Trees of Life (“t.o.L”), Tamala 2010: A Punk Cat in Space is as strange a thing as you'll ever see. Doubtlessly produced under the influence of past animated ‘head trips’ like The Beatles' classic film Yellow Submarine, Tamala 2010 is, without a doubt, something that will only appeal to a very specific audience: art students and college kids strung out on illegal substances.

Tamala 2010 follows something of a storyline. Basically, we follow Tamala, a sort of Hello Kitty-alike who swears like a sailor and flies around in her retro spaceship. Engine trouble pops up, and she's mistakenly rerouted to Planet Q, a place inhabited almost enitely by dogs. There's a mild terrorism problem; dogs attack cats at random. Meeting up with a cat named Michelangelo, Tamala evades a sadistic and predatority canine policeman and uncovers a whole load of mysteries and secrets surrounding Catty & Company, the gigantic corporation that controls nearly everything in the Feline Galaxy. That description, of course, makes the film sound fairly straightforward and simple, which is, unfortunately, not the case. The movie goes off on a series of hallucinogenic tangents that have almost nothing to do with the main storyline and will confuse anyone who isn't paying strict attention. The irony is that the film seems to have been designed to make the viewer tune out, so paying strict attention might be missing the point.

Deciphering Tamala 2010's message is fairly difficult. A single viewing of the film won't reveal much of anything, except a warped sort of anti-capitalist message that doesn't really assert itself due to the totally detached and apathetic main character. Catty & Company winds up being connected to a bizarre religious cult and supposedly has the ability to make and remake the universe in its own image; this all connects to Tamala, who doesn't seem to really care about anything that's happening around her. A visit to the t.o.L website reveals that the purpose of Tamala is to create a worldwide merchandising franchise, something that will basically do what Sanrio's wretched saccharine creations have already done. Great. So what's the point? ( Zim: to be honest hello kitty is just as common and dull as bread or water)

Well, for most people, the point is that this film is something to watch while Heavily Intoxicated, created by artists who were also Heavly Intoxicated. This conclusion is a little unfair; these days we have a tendency to attribute anything even slightly surreal or abstract to the abuse of narcotics, which undermines the entire concept of creativity. Tamala 2010, while certainly as tangential and nonsensical as your favorite addict's acid trip stories, seems to be the concentrated effort of a group of artists to create something more than just entertainment. Whether or not they were successful is another matter entirely; if this really was an attempt at sparking a worldwide phenomenon, then why did they produce a cultish, R-rated animated movie
with which to promote their concept? Only t.o.L really knows what the purpose of this film was, and we, as viewers, are asked simply to consume and draw our own conclusions.

Artistically, the film is unique. The characters are animated in a sort of Flash-like fashion, with smooth and simple movements. Vehicles and some backdrops are animated in 3-D; the result is a piece of pop art unlike anything else. The film is mostly in black and white, using color very sparingly. It's hard to tell if the visual style of this film is intended to put across any sort of message; you just never know with films like this one. The soundtrack is a surprisingly pleasant trance mix, perfectly suited for the visuals. As an art piece, Tamala 2010 does not disappoint.

Basically, if you're a film student, or an art student, you owe it to yourself to see this film at least once. It's one of those cult events that any serious underground culture junkie will have seen. The artist group that created it seems strangely cultish, and it's a wonder there isn't more information out there regarding them and their project. Whatever conclusion you come to, Tamala 2010 is a unique experience, totally different from anything else available on the market today. The total the cinema rated is (drum role please)

Overall (sub) : B+
Story : B
Animation : B
Art : A
Music : A

I still want to know why they made it look like Hello Kitty Because although they tried to make a great franchse I do not see why they had to make it down right wrong. I just feel they are trying too hard.
