Nine Lives


(out of 5)

Rodrigo Garcia follows Things You Can Tell Just By Looking At Her with another multifaceted look at the lives of various women. It presents nine scenes in the lives of characters whose relationships with others, themselves or the world are at an impasse:  in a loveless marriage,  reconnecting with her ex-husband,  trying to impart a sense of history to her daughter,  dealing with impending cancer surgery. While it is pulled off with the same polish and delicacy that the previous film featured, this time the stories do not hit so deep, nor are the emotions as resonant despite an equal level of commitment from the impressive cast.
