Close: 'Nine' shoot was 'totally new'

NEW YORK, Feb. 16 (UPI) -- Actress Glenn Close says shooting her vignette in Rodrigo Garcia's ensemble drama, "Nine Lives," was a great challenge since it was all done in one take.

"That was totally new," Close told reporters in New York recently. "The closest I had come to it was working with Sidney Lumet, who was shooting digital and could do whole scenes at a time, but this was different.

"It was on film," she pointed out, "and pretty much like a ballet because in my little story, we had a 360-degree camera and we had a little girl (Dakota Fanning) present in the beginning and we had the picnic packed up and her gone by the time you came back around. That was really complicated to figure out."

In the film, which shows snapshots of nine different women's lives in uninterrupted scenes that run about 10 to 12 minutes long, Close is seen as a woman talking to a young girl while visiting a grave in a cemetery.

"Nine Lives," which co-stars Holly Hunter, Aidan Quinn, Robin Wright Penn and Jason Isaacs, is on DVD now.
