Worth Watching - Dec 28: Australian Claymation $9.99 Trailer

December 28, 2008

$9.99 Trailer

That might have been a bit confusing - this is a trailer for a claymation movie made in Australia called $9.99. It played at a couple of prominent film festivals, including in Toronto and Rome this year. $9.99 is story about people living in a Syndey apartment complex looking for meaning in their lives. I haven't seen it yet, but it has received a few fairly positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. This trailer is arriving fairly late in the game, but it's never too late, especially for an indie movie like this that needs all the love it can get! Cartoon Brew said of it: "It's a remarkable film… Smart, funny and at the same time, deadly serious."

Watch the trailer for Tatia Rosenthal's $9.99:

$9.99 is directed by Israeli filmmaker Tatia Rosenthal an animator who is making her feature directorial debut after a few other claymation shorts. The screenplay was written by Rosenthal and Etgar Keret and is based on a series of short stories written by Keret. The film first premiered at Toronto International Film Festival earlier this year and was picked up by Regent Releasing for distribution in the US. $9.99 already debuted in very limited theaters (in Los Angeles) on December 12th, 2008 earlier this year.

    Every Australian film is so mellow dramatic, and they continue the tradition with another mellow drama.
  • peloquin
    Not a fan of any film that seems to have a religious agenda so this doesn't really appeal to me... But I guess I'm just some lefty liberal communist
