Product Description

Rob Marshall directs this big-budget musical based on the classic Fellini film 8 1/2. Set in early 1960s Venice, the film follows famous film director Guido Contini (Daniel Day-Lewis) as he struggles to complete his latest project on the eve of his 40th birthday. Meanwhile, he must also juggle the various colourful women in his life: his wife Luisa (Marion Cotillard), his mistress Carla (Penelope Cruz), his muse Claudia (Nicole Kidman), his producer Liliane (Judi Dench), his mother (Sophia Loren) and even a prostitute who resurfaces from the depths of his past (Stacy Ferguson). Kate Hudson co-stars as the American journalist who interviews him about his life and work.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nine? Nein! 16 May 2011
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
It's odd that Rob Marshall is typed as a musical director when he seems to be almost constantly embarrassed by the form, running away from genuine prolonged musical numbers like a frightened rabbit and hiding them as best as he can in the cutting room like a first-time killer clumsily disposing of the body in the nearest river only for giveaway dismembered body parts to float to the surface. Like Chicago, the staggeringly badly reviewed Nine tends to disguise its musical numbers as fantasy or dream sequences rather than embrace the format and just have people sing and dance the story and characters, leaving the impression that they could easily be edited out and not missed. That the film is a musical remake of Fellini's 8½, hardly the stuff of documentary realism itself with its constant fantasy sequences, could be seen as giving licence for such an approach if Marshall actually had the courage of the material's convictions, but he seems constitutionally incapable of presenting a musical number without breaking it up into soundbites. Like Richard Attenborough's equally misconceived and equally catastrophic screen version of A Chorus Line he even breaks up and cuts away from the numbers to have dialogue scenes running through them (Nicole Kidman's big number in particular loses most of its power from this intermittent dilution), making them particularly indigestible and half-hearted. That these dialogue scenes are incomplete themselves only makes matters worse, giving you the worst of both worlds as if Marshall were making two separate movies he had no confidence in and tried to stick them together after the fact to cut his losses.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good grief 3 Feb 2012
Format:DVD
We gave up on this film 54 minutes in. There had only been one good scene with singing and dancing. The rest was just quick snaps of topics which did not seem to be linked in any way. It might have been slightly more tolerable with some actual continuity.

Whoever said this is as good as Chicago must have been lobotmised between viewings. Do not spend your money on this film. It is some of the worst dross we've have watched for many years. If you're really, really desperate then watch it on TV when it's finally broadcast.

I cannot understand how this ever managed to be put up for any academy awards unless the nominators had a sick sense of humour.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nine 17 Jan 2011
By Spider Monkey HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
`Nine' is one of those films that looked awesome from the trailer and then felt slightly anti-climatic by the time the credits roll.

Featuring an incredible cast this follows a renowned Italian director as he struggle to make his next film and it also focuses on the various women in his life, from his mother, wife, mistress, film starlets, friends and admirers. The drama is inter-cut with musical numbers, which are actually quite good and liven up a rather staid and uninspiring plot.

Day-Lewis is great to watch as ever and Dench is great as his friend, but Marion Cottilard, as his wife, is superb and is the strongest part of the film. Apart from the beauty factor the other actresses add, they don't bring a great deal else to the film.

You can tell this has been adapted from a theatre show (by the same team that brought us `Chicago') and some scenes are shot and framed in a very stage orientated way. I actually enjoyed this aspect and felt it added to, rather than detracted from, the overall feel.

All in all, this is a decent enough film and whilst the trailer makes you expect more and the cast are sorely underused, this still has enough to hold your interest for the duration. Not one to rush to see, but worth a viewing if it's on TV or at a bargain price on Amazon.

4.0 out of 5 stars ten out of ten for nine 5 July 2010
Format:DVD
I loved this film at the cinema and I was concerned it would not be as good on DVD but I was wrong. You still get the sultryness of the whole thing. If you love films with good music, big dance numbers and a lovely story you must invest in this DVD.

More than excellent! - Superb casting and performances and everything I've come to expect from an Anthony Minghella film. I've since bought another copy to send as a birthday present.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Classic 24 Nov 2011
By Annette
Format:DVD
My type of movie but most of the time not that of many others. I enjoyed it but doubt if I would watch it again. It is not Moulin Rouge or Cabaret quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great underrated film 15 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The music and dance in this film is amazing. Seems to have been overlooked. Loved Fergie and 'be Italian' . Watch it if you like sweet charity or moulin rouge
