Nine Days

Don’t waste your time with the film Nine Days, which I saw at the Sundance Film Festival. How I wish I could get that time back.

Based on an odd premise that’s never adequately explained or thought out, the main character is bureaucrat who works out of a grubby, old house in some otherworld. His job is to interview full grown beings to give them a chance at life on earth. All the beings have full personalities and are supposed to win their chance at life based on their ethics and personality. The “hero” is looking for someone who fits his personal criteria perfectly. Well, that’s surely not what happens in real life.
