I enjoyed this film. The notion that it's porn is not really an issue in my opinion. Whatever you want to call it, they appeared to be a couple having an intensely erotic and sexual relationship. Yes their life was quite dull, livened up by the three things that enrich most young peoples lives - sex, drugs and rock & roll. It made me feel quite nostalgic!

The fact that the film explored the highs and lows of a year spent together, with no real future but a sense of immediate gratification that most young people enjoy for a while at least, sets it apart from porn. Porn is almost invariably about nice graphic shots of two (more?) people achieving nothing more than a climax, with a liberal smattering of cruelty, misogony and appaling acting thrown in. There was only one "money shot" in 9 songs and it was a tender, intimate moment with no grunting or fake moaning, or vacuous instructions along the "give it to me baby" school of script. Instead I felt as if I was a voyeur, evesdropping on the life of two pretty ordinary people. A bit like watching Peter Andre and Jordan in the jungle!!

The fact that it was she who appeared to be using him as a means of recreation also set it apart from the norm in terms of porn. He did appear weak, not unlike so many men in a similar situation really. It's not always the woman who falls in love and is hard done by.

The music was gritty, contemporary and shot in a way that felt like a memory of so many concerts one had been to. Not always exactly what you wanted but stimulating and real. The whole became a blurry mess of drugs, music and sex, hingeing on the pretext that something serious was also being planned - just like my days at art college.

An interesting, brave and honest film.

The storyline: an English guy is in Antarctica and mulls over his recent relationship with an American girl - they meet, have a lot of sex, go to lots of gigs at the Brixton Academy and occasionally eat and do some coke. That's about it, really. The format of the film is pretty much music scene, followed by sex scene, followed by music scene, followed by sex scene. With a few contrasting scenes from Antarctica.
Music-wise, there are some notable bands in the film and a lovely musical piece by Michael Nyman. The sex is famously explicit and although much prettier than your average porn film, it has the common characteristic of the sex being rather unemotional and unmoving. Unlike, say, Patrice Chereau's Intimacy, there isn't any passion or emotion behind the characters. It's just about two people meeting, having a lot of fun and then parting without any fuss whatsoever. There are plenty of relationships like that so it is not unrealistic but whether you can make a good film out of it is debatable. The most emotionally involving part of the film for me was the Michael Nyman piece! The film is done nicely enough and is not without merit but could really have done with better actors.
If you're looking for a love story, you won't find it here. If you're looking for passionate sex, you won't really find that here either. If you're looking for arthouse sex with some good music - look no further.

9Songs as many reviewers have already stated, contains graphic, unsimulated sex.

Is it porn? No.

9 Songs is a story of reflection. A young man remembering a lost romance. His sense of isolation after the break up conveyed through the isolation one feels in the Antarctic. (where Matt, the 'hero' - played by a very brave Kieran O'Brien - works).

Criticism has been placed on this film for the editing. Sex, music, sex music, sex music and so on. However, what seems overlooked is the film is from Matt's perspective. He remembers points in the relationship he's had with Lisa - played by an equally brave Margo Stilley - which were marked by pivotal moments in their relationship: going to see rock concerts.

A modern relationship, we can assume Matt and Lisa met while they were each attending a rock concert. Is this the foundation of their relationship? Is this the one thing they really had in common? We have to assume so, as they seem their happiest when at the concerts.

Like any other initmate relationship there's sex. Winterbottom allows us to share some of the intimate moments Matt experienced with Lisa. Awkwardness, through to being comfortable with one another's nudity, through to the too familiar, almost disinterested area where people just go through the motions because they're a couple.

The film has flaws, but Winterbottom has at least tried to depict a modern relationship. Lisa is just out to have some fun, Matt, however, is being drawn into feelings he didn't expect. When his feelings towards Lisa are not returned in kind, the relationship goes down hill ("I can't make you love me, if you don't, I can't make your heart feel something that it won't" - as George Michael once sang).

I have been conscious of the controversy surrouding "9 Songs" since it first appeared, and it was in part my curiousity, and in part its appropriateness for the moment, that led me to choose to curl up with it, a glass and a friend.

Unfortunately, I spent much of the time struggling to follow and hear what was going on. I'm sure this was largely due to the editing, but perhaps also because I was looking and listening for something that simply wasn't there. It's a simple, realistic (but rather dis-jointed) snap shot of a brief relationship between two very ordinary people in which not very much happens. It is the very ordinariness of the couple that is both refreshing and reassuring. Erotic intimacy is not simply the domain of the beautiful. Indeed, it took me a while to adjust to the androgyny of Lisa. To me, a brave and honest move on both the parts of Director and cast to step outside the mould.

It is noticeably short, but, to my mind - without more of a tale to tell -long enough. There is something almost soporific about it, and not only did we have to re-wind the bits I missed, but, I think I must have nodded off through several of the 9 songs! I should, however, like to find the time to see it again. I came away feeling privileged to be invited to be a "fly on the wall" and to be part of such simple human tenderness. Certainly not porn but definitely an adult movie best watched with the someone in your life you feel completely comfortable with.
