Nine Days (2020)


What about the good memories?” – Kyo

“Good memories, bad memories, they’re all just the same right now. It still hurts… In a way that no one can see, and only I can feel.” – Will

Number of Times Seen – 1 (1 Nov 2021)

Brief Synopsis – A man interviews various souls for a position to be born on Earth.

My Take on it – This is a film that I came across by accident and was quite intriguing to watch due to the very ambivalent and mysterious nature of it all.

The dialogue is wonderful and they give the viewer the chance to see various reactions to the same kind of dialogue over and over, yet each is distinctly different and tell us something else about that said character.

The way that the characters interact with one another is also done well because of the way that this are left very unexplained throughout.

The interview process is also done in a nice way because it lets the audience has a more relatable way to deal with the things transpiring here.

The cast is largely unknown, yet they let things play out in such a realistic way.

The use of Benedict Wong and Bill Skarsgård in supporting roles, helps tether things to something grander and it doesn’t feel completely like an independent feature.

Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – All of the VCR displays in Will’s house blink “12:00”. This is the default time display for that old technology after the power is cycled. It is a bit of an old meme. Most consumers never learned how to set their VCR clocks and apparently the Interviewer didn’t either. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (7/10)
