Director Rodrigo Garcia deals with issues of race and age through a story of nine women. Each episode of this film is a single shot, so the stories of each woman are played out in real time (10 to 14 minutes). And the top-notch cast including Holly Hunter, Sissy Spacek, Glenn Close, etc all give riveting performances. Although the nine episodes are clearly divided by individual titles and black screens, they all commonly deal with dilemmas caused by ´human relationships´. But the camera seems to intrude all of a sudden in the midst of these relationships. And as the characters go through verbal disputes, conflicts, moments of remorse, the camera indifferently watches on only to leave without a trace. Therefore each episode seems to end abruptly right as the character is still moving or going somewhere. Then again, isn´t that what life is all about?
