Indiwire about $9.99 at Rome International Film Festival

Oct. 28th, 2008 | 12:57 pm

The best films in the first part of the festival were small films that more than delivered because they never pretend to be anything there are not. ... Equally enchanting is the Israeli-Australian animated film "$9.99" from director Tatia Rosenthal. The film uses stop-motion animation to tell the stories of a very heterogeneous group of people who all live in the same apartment building in Sydney. The screenplay by Etgar Keret and the director strikes just the right balance between quirk and simple observation, making the animated characters all lovable but flawed human beings. Geoffrey Rush's contribution as the voice of a character who might be an angel is especially noteworthy.
