Movie recommendation - Nine Lives

A DVD that was languishing on the 'to be watched' shelf at my house, finally got its viewing last week and I need to mention it here. Nine Lives is a powerfully acted story in 'hyperlink cinema' fashion. It tells nine loosely intertwined tales about nine different women with their own collection of life issues and manner of dealing with them.

Themes include parent-child relationships, fractured love, adultery, illness, and death. These overlapping vignettes, each one running about the same length and told in a single, unbroken take, features a talented ensemble cast. Do yourself a favour - do not spoil the story by reading about it ahead of time.
