I have been desperate, and I mean DESPERATE, to see $9.99 since I first heard of it in, I think, 2008. A stop-motion film based on the stories of Etgar Keret – what’s not to like? Well, after seeing it: nothing.

It is wonderful. Poignant, affecting, funny, magical and feels so real. Brilliant. Just like his stories. Thanks to Jen for making me aware it had finally been released (even if that’s only region 1).

Here’s the trailer.
