BRITFLICKS article reviewing the British Independent Film Festival:
"Dead Cat is a sweet and engaging film, with just enough quirk to set it apart from the usual negative trappings of the 'rom-com' tag. It has some charming performances from the leading couple who deserve to go on to find great success. I was pleasantly surprised by what was achieved on a meagre £30,000 budget, the most noteworthy aspect being the warm, nostalgic looking cinematography. DOP Jun Keung Cheung is definitely one to watch".
