Review: Be My Cat: A Film for Anne
Anne Hathaway has a new super fan also known as super stalker. And it’s all so evident in Adrian Tofei’s Be My Cat: A Film For Anne. Written and directed by Adrian Tofei, Be My Cat: A Film For Anne is Romania’s first found footage film. The film is in English probably so Anne can easily understand it. Be My Cat: A Film For Anne stars Adrian Tofei, Sonia Teodorriu, Florentina Hariton, and Alexandra Stroe.
Be My Cat: A Film For Anne tells the story of a Romanian indie filmmaker, Adrian, who wants to make a film with Hollywood actress Anne Hathaway. So to get the attention of Anne, he decides to make a documentary to show Anne that he is worthy of doing a film with her. Adrian lures three Romanian actresses to an apartment and basement that he has rented. The neighbors ignore the screams because he has let everyone know that he is filming a horror movie with screaming actresses.
The idea is that by showing Anne Hathaway how he really feels then Anne would decide to make a movie called Be My Cat with Adrian. Adrian is determine to show his devotion to Anne Hathaway, his talent as a director, and his ability to allow these actresses to make the ultimate sacrifice.
Be My Cat: A Film For Anne premiered at the 2015 Fantasporto International Film Festival in Portugal. The film went on to be selected for 15 other film festivals including 2015 Transilvania IFF and 2016 Other Worlds Austin. Be My Cat went on to win numerous awards including Best Film at the 2015 A Night of Horror International Film Festival in Sydney and Best Actor for Adrian Tofei at the 2016 Nashville Film Festival in the US and 2016 Hamilton Film Festival in Canada.
The Verdict: Adrian Tofei’s Be My Cat: A Film For Anne is absolutely brilliant. Limited budget, resources, and bad acting are the typical kisses of death for indie filmmakers and found footage films. However, Adrian Tofei takes these weaknesses and makes them his strength. His film is truly authentic found footage. This leads me to one conclusion. Either Adrian Tofei is one of the best indie actors that I have seen in a long time or he is really an Anne Hathaway stalker that loves girls and cats. Adrian’s performance is legit creepy to say the least.
Be My Cat: A Film For Anne is a must-see for fans of found footage films. The film is set for release on Vimeo On Demand on December 5th, 2016. It is currently available for pre-order HERE. Releases on Amazon Video, Prime and DVD will follow in January 2017.
It would be awesome to see Adrian Tofei to film Be My Cat 2 in Hollywood with a cameo from Anne Hathaway. Adrian Țofei also started an online petition to help the movie reach Anne Hathaway.

Check out the trailer below. In my opinion, the trailer doesn’t do the movie justice.
