Movie Info

A powerful, brooding love story that examines the seemingly implausible relationship between Frankie and Lev, two radically different personalities that somehow were always meant for each other. Set against the country-tinged, singer‐songwriter hipster music scene of East Los Angeles and Hollywood, the film chronicles the couple's struggle with their personal demons as they try to hold on to one another against insurmountable odds.

Critic Reviews for 9 Full Moons

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

Though the film's second half could be tighter, the details and atmosphere ring true throughout, especially in the walking-wounded chemistry between Seimetz and Roberts' tentative dreamers.

Amy Seimetz is fast becoming a face to watch.

Despite the initial promise, though, the more we get to see of Lev and Frankie's unlikely romance and chaotic lives, the less original it seems.

9 Full Moons is exactly why we need indie cinema. It's a thoughtful, edgy, lusty, and profoundly mature fever dream of a film, beautifully directed by Tomer Almagor. The performance here by Seimetz is devastating and formidable. Roberts, as a troubled and discontent musician, hits a level of depth veering on the poetic. Together they are cataclysmic. The screenplay, also written by Almagor, is edgy, restrained, and sophisticated echoing the complex films of Cassavettes, John Huston in his late period, and other writer/directors who delved into the dark complexities of conflicted people, dancing on the edge of their lives, who fall in love. The cinematography perfectly captures the deeply melancholic noir-tinged chiaroscuro of East Hollywood and it's hidden nooks and crannies haunted by broken dreams and lost souls. Highly recommend this film, a perfect antidote to the skull crushing tent-poles that dominate the cinema in these times.

Sputtering and sparking, 9 Full Moons is a tough, gritty take on two tortured souls trying to heal each other.
