Storyline

Director Alex Halpern's feature-length documentary, Nine Good Teeth, unfolds through the stories and recollections of his 102-year-old grandmother Mary Mirabito, an outspoken and fiercely independent woman. In a revealing and often hilarious portrait, Mary dispenses homespun wisdom while divulging family secrets and rivalries. Nine Good Teeth reveals many of the common truths hidden away in all our families, as well as the unexpected - late night visits from Jack Kerouac, illicit love affairs and the occasional murder.

A 103-Year-Old Woman Will Steal Your Heart
26 June 2003 | by alexduffy2000See all my reviews

This documentary portrait of the filmmaker's grandmother was a lot of fun to watch. Nana, born in 1899, has a life that has spanned three centuries and will be 104 this year! Most of this film was shot after Nana had turned 96 and it is an amazing collection of interviews with her and her family, with lots of archival footage included. Nana's life has a lot of ups and downs, including family deaths that shatter her world, but she always gets over it and goes on. A wonderful, heartfelt portrait of an amazing lady. There were a few moments where the film began to drag, but at 80 minutes it was just about the right length. If you've ever thought you didn't want to live long, see this film, Nana is having a lot of fun at age 100 plus! 9 out of 10.
