Nine Lives – Filtered

Theatrical Release: October 14, 2005
DVD Release: February 14, 2006


NINE LIVES is a moving exploration of the individual experiences of nine women as told through nine single unbroken tales. As characters from one story reappear in supporting roles in others, Rodrigo Garcia interweaves a grand tapestry of universal resonance that hinges on perfornances from an incredible ensemble. By depicting nine different characters at emotional crossroads, NINE LIVES examines how we so often find ourselves captive in relationships, both past and present.

Dove Review

“Nine Lives” is a story that takes the viewer into the lives of nine women. They all seem to be connected somehow. There were a couple of moments in the movie that may not be suitable for younger audiences-for example, when a couple tells a story of how they were going to wait four years after they got married to have children but the wife got pregnant before that and ended up having an abortion.They did regret it. Also, there was a man and woman that were about to commit adultery but the woman talked to her daughter on the phone and realized what she was doing was wrong so she leaves the man. And a woman is so hurt from what her father has done to her in the past it shows her holding a gun to either kill herself or her father ( doesn’t show actual killing). This is an interesting movie but this film is recommended for ages twelve and above due to the subject matter.
