Reviews Gullkatt

Dumme dyr 01.12.2022

«En fortettet fortelling om ensomhet og omsorgssvikt, som viser hvor rare vi mennesker blir uten andre rundt oss.»

« …karakteren er en slags miks av premisset rundt Astrid Lindgrens selvstendige Pippi, farget med Tove Janssons temperamentsfulle karakter Lille My, satt inn i en Sven Nordqvists Gubben og katten-verden – minus alt det koselige …»

«Jenta er mer enn bare ensom, trist og sur. Hun er i konstant bevegelse. Hun dagdrømmer ikke bare, hun handler (…) det er dette som gjør henne til en kompleks karakter med humor, menneskelige behov og særheter.»

«Kattepine som lodder dypt»

«Tekstlig trykkammer»

«Relasjonen mellom jenta og dyret er en herlig form for surrealisme …»
