Reviews

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.

`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.

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.Read more ›

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.

By GlynLuke TOP 100 REVIEWER on 16 Jun. 2015
Format: DVD
Daniel Day Lewis (superb) plays Guido Contini, a Felliniesque film director with the equivalent of writer's block in Rob Marshall's fascinating failure, an 'update' of Fellini's own film Eight-and-a-Half.
It's a musical too. A bad one, with only a couple of the songs registering at all. I defy anyone to remember a single tune after seeing the film, which is not only a shame but surely a major fault in a musical.
The women - and what a cast it is! - are all good to wonderful, with the ever divine Marion Cotillard a standout as Guido's constantly betrayed wife (Cotillard has the best voice of the lot too, not to mention arguably the best song), and Penelope Cruz typically wonderful as his volatile mistress.
Judi Dench gives strong support, and is utterly believable as a seen-it-all costume designer, and a nicely restrained Nicole Kidman scores as an Anita Ekberg-like star actress, while Kate Hudson and Fergie are fine as a flirty American journalist and Guido's sexy childhood inspiration respectively.
The grande dame of Italian cinema Sophia Loren (not an actress I've ever been that fond of) is rather wasted as Guido's mother, barely registering.
They're all highly effective, though the material they're given to work with could have been so much better. I'd have eschewed the whole idea of a musical, and gone for a straight story of a director and his troubled life and career crisis. One problem is that the mostly unmemorable songs only serve to interrupt an already thin tale.
It also reminds me of the truly dreadful Bob Fosse film All That Jazz, though luckily it isn't quite as dire as that travesty.
