She and Her Cat is one of Makoto Shinkai's earliest works. The movie impressed me by the way he use a cat as the protagonist to illustrate the life of the owner. The owner's face is always hidden, but the movie can still communicate to us her emotion through the cat's point of view and his dialog, as well as her body language in certain moments. I like how he use black and white for the whole movie- we aren't interupted by the surroundings but can only focus on the characters and their feelings.
