Henri The French Cat Questions His Life (Hilarious Video)

Check out this wonderful video of Henri, the French cat, grappling with the pain of existence.

Henri is adorable, such a drama queen, and the narrative is great, and so French.

Attention, francophiles: the French words are great, although the accent is not straight from Paris.

But who cares? Henri is the perfect name for a cat filled with ennui; this video is both really funny and really sad.

Well made. Love the french accent and the music as well as the Black and White style the video has been captured.

Lovely all around! Funny and touching satire with a marvelous accent....my grandgirls and I have watched Henri many many times now and every time I see and hear something new....this film has layers of meaning and soul in every look and move, and is so "French" in our perception! I absolutely love the view Henri has of the world, it's so CAT!

What a beutiful cat Henri is! Simply gorgeous. Great sense of humour too (they leave tasty snacks just out of reach, they taunt me mercilessly, lmao). I only hope he is not ignored by his owners like he claims.

"I'm surrounded by morons"

I feel you, mate.

@ 1:25 "Attenti Al Gatto" sign is in Italian. Is Henri actually Italian?

Confidential to Nancy E. Wow. Such flames, such heat, such passion, or, did your caps button accidentally lock? So, his French is less that perfect, eat kitty litter already! Have you done a video? Perhaps not, as you would not be able to do one as good, or, if you did, could not withstand the onslaught of 'catty' commentators, such as yourself.

Wonderful video, perfectly captures the attitude of your cat. I disagree with the comment about your french and thinking it would be better in english. The french is what makes it perfect and suits the dialog so well. Well done. More please...

I loved your accent and the way you captured the emotions and added your unique dialog. Great video. I sent it along to many of my friends who would also enjoy Henri. Thank you, Shalom
