Entertainment Reviews:

Hollywood Reporter - 12/15/2008
"There is something undeniable, hypnotic and bewitching about Tatia Rosenthal's $9.99....A stop-action animated film that tackles the magically realist, existential short stories of Israeli author-filmmaker Etgar Keret."
Box Office - 04/01/2009
3 stars out of 5 -- "Tatia Rosenthal's existentially themed drama $9.99 utilizes stop-motion animation to explore semi-fantastical ideas that couldn't otherwise be touched in live-action."
A.V. Club - 06/18/2009
"Keret's alternately sweet and bitter sense of humor comes through clearly in $9.99, via warm voicework by vets like Geoffrey Rush and Anthony LaPaglia, and through a straight-faced script that favors gentle melancholy over big, broad, strident emotions." -- Grade: B
New York Times - 06/19/2009
"[T]he gestures and expressions of these handmade citizens of a meticulously realized city are given more poignancy by the slight hesitancy imposed by stop-motion animation."

Product Description:

Israeli writer Etgar Keret, one of the minds behind WRISTCUTTERS: A LOVE STORY and JELLYFISH, brings more of his brand of magical realism to the screen with this stop-motion film based on his writing. Twentysomething Dave is without a job and lives with his family, but he is in search of the meaning of life. His interactions with his quirky neighbors fuel both the film and his hunt for knowledge.
