Nine - The Movie

I loved the movie musical Nine when it came to the theaters in August 2009. But with the short run I was unable to see it again. It came out on DVD in May. I just watched it again and enjoyed it even more!

Film Synopsis - Nine is a vibrant and provocative musical that follows the life of world famous film director Guido Contini (Daniel Day-Lewis) as he reached a creative and personal crisis of epic proportion, while balancing the numerous women in his life including his wife (Marion Cotillard), his Mistress (Penelope Cruz), his film star muse (Nicole Kidman), his confidant and costume designer (Judi Dench), an American fashion journalist (Kate Hudson), the whore from his youth (Stacy Ferguson) and his mother (Sophia Loren). The film is directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago)

While the movie did not gather many good reviews it was fun and entertaining. The plot is very weak but that hardly matters when the stars are what one focuses on. The dance and musical numbers just seem to grow on a person. I loved them even more the second time around. See the official trailer.

The best musical number in the entire movie is Kate Hudson in Cinema Italiano. I could watch this over and over again.

Go rent the DVD and enjoy,
