The Cat in the Bag depicts the conflict between a young Quebecois couple whose existential angst serves as both backdrop and symbol of Quebecois society. The film addresses Quebeckers’ political coming-of-age, as viewed by a filmmaker enamoured with concepts of the ideal and the absolute. The soundtrack features compositions by jazz legend John Coltrane.
Soundtrack album, John's Coltrane's Blue World, available from Impulse! / Universal Music Enterprises.
