Film director Guido Contini is in serious trouble. He’s supposed to be shooting his latest movie, simply titled “Italia”, but he has no story, no script and a producer who won’t leave him alone. As he contemplates his project he is brought to mind of the most influential women in his life; his...

ConsBoring, really really boring.

I love musicals! I can't get enough if them; Rocky Horror, Moulin Rouge, Chicago - amazing! So when I saw an advert for the movie 'Nine', I became very excited and wanted to see it as soon as possible. After seeing it, I have to say, I was pretty disappointed. It's one of these movies where they...

Among the never-ending stream of modern musical films, there were some hits, ("Moulin Rouge," "Hairspray") complete critical/financial flops (2009's "Fame," "Rent") and those in between. ("Evita," "The Phantom of the Opera") But before you say "Oh no, not another flashy, camp, musical film,"...

Consnon-existent plot, unmemorable musical numbers!

Last weekend whilst visiting my cousins we decided once the kids were in bed to have a girly night in with a huge bowl of popcorn and a film that my cousin had rented. I'd seen trailers for this film when it was released but wasn't intrigued enough to go see it in the cinema, preferring to wait...

Filmed much in the way that Chicago is, Nine tells a story through the songs of its main character, Guido Conti (Daniel Day-Lewis) and the various women in his life. As he struggles to come up with material for his new film as well as find his heart's true desire, we as the audience get to...

Conslots!

Despite being a huge movie fan, believe it or not, I am not a very big 'musical' fan. I love movies and I love music, although anything other than 'Grease' and 'Mamma Mia! (I love both films!) and I am not too keen. Although, one musical movie which I did want to see was one called 'Nine'. Nine...

“Guido! Guido! Guido!”

ProStoryline was ok and some songs were fun

ConsSeveral songs really sucked

Although I still manage to sneak in quite a lot of film viewing, I don't often get out to the cinema despite being a huge fan of it. I recently attended a birthday outing and Nine was on the agenda, I have to say that both the professional critics and the dooyoo critics seemed to pan it and I was...

“A wholly disappointing film”

published 09/07/2010

ProMarion Cotillard!

ConsThe rest of the cast

A hollow script, some pointless scenes and a jumbled narrative hinder Daniel Day-Lewis, who gives an underwhelming performance as disillusioned filmmaker Guido Contini, in this ostentatious directorial vehicle for Chicago helmer Rob Marshall. The ensemble may be showy, and the costumes may be...

Manufacturer's product description

From the creative team behind the Oscar-winning Broadway adaptation of Chicago comes a lavish feature take on the Tony award-winning musical inspired by Federico Fellini's whimsical classic 8 1/2. Directed by Rob Marshall, Nine details the effort made by world-class filmmaker Guido Contini (Daniel Day-Lewis – THERE WILL BE BLOOD, MY LEFT FOOT) in realizing his latest cinematic vision while simultaneously balancing his relationships with the many passionate and influential women in his life, including his mistress, Carla (Penelope Cruz – VANILLA SKY, VOLVER), and wife, Luisa (Marion Cotillard – PUBLIC ENEMIES, LA VIE EN ROSE). Original lyricist and composer Maury Yeston serves as co-executive producer for the filmed version of his own 1982 Broadway hit. Kate Hudson (ALMOST FAMOUS, BRIDE WARS), Nicole Kidman (COLD MOUNTAIN, DEAD CALM), Sophia Loren (EL CID, MAN OF LA MANCHA), Stacy 'Fergie' Ferguson of Black Eyes Peas fame), and Judi Dench (IRIS, SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE) co-star.
