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.

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.
Feel free to check out my blog which can be found on my profile page.
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.
Daniel Day Lewis was as compelling as ever, Penelope Cruz, Kate Hudson and Fergie were all fantastic. Judi Dench is hard to see outside of her typecast characters but performed well and seemed to relish the role. A general comment for all - these were not standard roles for any of them but they all took on the challange and succeeded. All seemed to relish the challenge and were totally convincing. Afraid Nicole Kidman just didn't seem to fit the role at all slipped accents to often to overlook.
Unusual story structure, creative direction, cinematography and editing, interesting characters and great performances from a top flight cast produced a compelling, convincing movie.
