Just finished watching this curious little gem of a movie.
‘9’ (2009) is a beautiful piece of animation with creative characters and an engaging story, set in a post-apocalyptic world where nothing is alive except from a few intelligent machines and nine handmade little creatures struggling for survival. I vaguely remember hearing the title before it was released, but for some reason it never stuck with me. Bumped into it on Netflix tonight and decided to watch it on a whim. Incredibly glad I did, and I hereby warmly recommend it!
Directed by Shane Acker, voice actors include Elijah Wood, John C. Reilly, Christopher Plummer and Jennifer Connelly.
(Remember to set the trailer to HD.)
