If Cats Disappeared from the World


A postman learns that he doesn’t have much time left to live due to a terminal illness. A devil then appears in front of him and offers to extend his life if he picks something in the world that will disappear.

You will get an extra day to live, but all the person you love along with their memories with you will vanish, how are you going to live without those?

The story of this movie discovers the postman’s connection to people in his life, through the things that has been eliminated by the devil. He wondered a lot if he disappeared from the world, who on earth would mourn for him? If cats disappeared from the world, how would the world change?

The cat signifies his relationship with his mother and it was the last course by the devil to disappear, will he agree on it?

I love this movie.  I cried quietly for how many times, maybe because I don’t want to perish with full of regrets.  Nevertheless, we are all going to die, let’s try to live every single day as if it is our last day.

A must see movie with strong performances by Takeru Satoh, Aoi Miyasaki and Mieko Harada.


Verdict: 10/10
