Vittorio Basile is an shipowner who invents "a buttonhole of Italian naval engineering" to give shine to the city of Naples. But the greed of the fixer Salvatore Lo Giusto, known as King, and the beautiful Angelica Carannante, who promised Basile's wedding, end the life and dreams of the shipowner, leaving little girl Mia, Vittorio's first daughter, in the clutches of the stepmother and her six sons - five females and a transsexual boy, who pin to the little girl the nickname of Gatta Cinderella. Will be able Primo Gemito, former protection man of Basile, to bring legality back to Naples harbor and to save Cinderella from her captivity?
The animation is totally immersive (as it is a story that has water as its constant presence) and three dimensional in the most authentic sense of the term: the depth of field is mainly given by stratification of design and classroom attitudes such as constant presence dust, ashes and motley (human) debris. Because Gatta Cinderella is above all a story of ghosts, indeed, of those projections that are the very essence of cinema: in this sense, Rak's team should try, next time, with the animated version of The invention by Morel.
