Nine (2009)

Director Rob Marshall (Chicago) helms a musical re-telling of Fellini's semi-autobiographical . It tells the story of a famous film director Guido Contini (Daniel Day-Lewis) who confronts a mid-life crisis of creative and personal problems.

Guido must balance the many women in his life, including his wife (Marion Cotillard), his mistress (Penelope Cruz), his film star muse (Nicole Kidman), his confidant and costume designer (Judi Dench), an American fashion journalist (Kate Hudson), the prostitute from his youth (Fergie) and his mother (Sophia Loren).

The original 1982 Broadway production of Nine, with music and lyrics by Maury Yeston, won five Tony Awards including Best Musical. Read a great interview between Marion Cotillard & Penelope Cruz at InterviewMagazine.com.

It was bad

The person behind us summed it up as "The Ice-cream was better". I don't see how anyone could give this 5 stars.

Appalling

I thought this movie was one of the worst movies I have ever seen. This is the only movie I have seen where I was tempted to leave. It was boring, the costumes were lack lustre, the music was the same the whole way through, the lyrics sucked. It was trite, and it was an insult to the intelligence of the audience - they think they can just get these big...

It will blow your mind off!

I can't believe the negative critics! This is one of the best movies I have seen, absolutely fabulous. Awesome performances and songs, the cinematography is spectacular and the athmosphere of Rome in the 50's is totally enjoyable. I loved it and I will see it again and again and again...

Very Very Sexy

Extraordinary, poignant, full of flavour and very, very sexy. This film is very artistic and wonderfully presented, both the cast and the selection of music. It gives a particular sense of atmosphere. The scenes of Italy were very delicate and beautiful. This film is fast paced and full of emotional character.

Sophisticated, sexy and stylishly decked out, Rob Marshall's disciplined, tightly focused film impresses and amuses.

Rob Marshall's flawed but frequently dazzling Nine is a hot-blooded musical fantasia full of song, dance, raging emotion and simmering sexuality.

Nine is just plain adrift in its own lack of necessity.

Daniel Day Lewis takes the cliché of the philandering Italian momma's boy, shows the charm and then savagely exposes the hollow core.

Looks fantastic but is emotionally underwhelming.

The disappointments here are many, from a starry cast the film ill-uses to flat musical numbers that never fully integrate into the dramatic story. The only easy prediction is that Nine is not going to revive the slumbering musical-film genre.

Though slightly marred by a clunky structure and a lack of truly catchy tunes, Nine’s wall-to-wall first-rate performances from its stellar cast (especially Cotillard) add a touch of class.
