From the creative team behind the Oscar-winning 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) 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 (Penélope Cruz), and wife, Luisa (Marion Cotillard). Original lyricist and composer Maury Yeston serves as co-executive producer for the filmed version of his own 1982 Broadway hit. Kate Hudson, Nicole Kidman, Sophia Loren, Fergie, and Judi Dench co-star in the Weinstein Co. production. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
A director with such a terrific cast, in this reasonably acceptable if familiar plotline should have been able to save this movie. Not so. Few of the characters are compelling and the music is completely foregetable. Don't bother.
Not too sure maybe 3 stars, but it lacked a good story line, weird dialogue and too slow. There was one beautiful song in the movie . A good movie if you are in the business of entertaining - great choreography - awesome !!
I THOUGHT IT WAS TERRIBLE. IT WAS REMINISCENT OF "ALL THAT JAZZ" BOB FOSSE MOVIE, BUT AT LEAST THE CHARACTERS WERE INTERESTING AND THERE WAS MUSIC. IN "NINE"..I WENT FORWARD SO MANY TIMES TO GET A MUSICAL SEGMENT THAT I WENT TO THE END OF THE MOVIE AND THAT WAS THAT.
