Perfect purchase and a brilliant film (Warning, it's a musical).
Verified purchase
So happy with the purchase. Delivered fast, no scratches or marks on case or disc, and very reasonable pricing.

Nine (MUSICAL!!) is the story of Italian filmmaker Guido Contini (Daniel Day-Lewis), who is down on his luck and hasn't had success in his career in a while. All of his fans refer to his "old films" as being the best. Depressed and lost, he revisits the nine women in his life that are his muses and guides in his film career, although many never saw themselves as anything but a woman in his life. It stars so many brilliant actresses (No particular order: Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard, Penélope Cruz, Judi Dench, Sophia Loren, Kate Hudson, Stacey Ferguson (Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas). This movie is not your typical musical, because it goes from one amazing woman to the next, with one song each (Cotillard happens to sing twice) and he moves along, trying to find the inspiration for his masterpiece. So brilliantly acted by the entire cast, Nine should be entered into the books as one of the most unique, beautifully-done movie musicals of all time!

Jumpy and not in a good way (film editing)
Verified purchase
Some good numbers here and there but overall doesn't really catch fire like it should. Something seems missing and/or strained. Maybe the awareness of Fellini's 8 1/2 which seems to haunt the movie more than really inspire it. MTV style quick cut edits don't help. This style of editing, sadly all-too-prevalent today, attempts to use film technique to create interest and appeal where it is missing in the script. At least in my opinion. All in all though an okay purchase for fans of musicals, although Fellini fans (and I am one) should tread with care.

Not As Entertaining As Trailer!
Verified purchase
I purchased this movie as it was cheaper to buy it versus renting it. The trailer made it appear that it would be similar to Moulin Rouge or Burlesque, but it was not. The plot of the movies a film director who in an escape to deal with his complicated relationships uses his imagination to deal with different scenarios. He mixes real life and fantasy.

Amazing Accomplishment in Film
Verified purchase
I absolutely loved this movie--I mean, really, Sophia Loren, Judi Dench, Marion Cotillard, Penelope Cruz, Kate Hudson, Nicole Kidman, Fergie and Daniel Day-Lewis together in one movie?? But, it is not for everyone. "Nine" is very European, and probably too sophisticated for most of the American audience these days. For those of us who were adults during the Fellini, Mastroianni era, it provides a microcosm of the Italian movie industry of that time. The performances of the big musical numbers (who knew Fergie had it in her??) are alone worth watching the film. Marion Cotillard breaks your heart, showing how devastating it can be to love a man such as Guido. Daniel Day-Lewis delivers his usual "spot-on" performance as the tortured and lost Guido Contini, and, of course, the ageless, gorgeous Sophia Loren needs no description. I would also recommend the 11-minute companion film "The Women of Nine" in which Rob Marshall talks about making the film, and all the stars talk about what an extraordinary experience it was to be in it. I watched the little film first, and I'm glad I did.

I give Nine a Ten
Verified purchase
Great musical numbers, and wow! Wotta cast! My favorite number is Cinema Italiano performed by Kate Hudson, but that's not to discount any of the others... they are all brilliant! I had no idea Judy Dench or Penelope Cruz could sing and dance, but oh boy, howdy could they! I mean they totally sold their numbers in true actor form without any more than rudimentary song-and-dance chops, which is a phenomenal skill in itself. And of course, Daniel Day Lewis can do anything and I'm beginning to think the same of Marion Cotillard. Her range from this movie to Vie en Rose to Macbeth is astonishing!

Quirky, Funny, Weird, Unique Musical
Verified purchase
Great quirky, funny, weird, unique musical! "Be Italian" is just one of the numbers. I purchased this in Blu-ray. The cinematography is breath taking in the big production numbers in this film. The music and choreography is reminds me of the musical Chicago, so if you liked Chicago you'd probably like Nine. Storyline is a bit hard to follow but it lends itself to multiple viewings that way. Highly recommend just for the amazing production number visuals alone!

Brief review from a casual viewer
Verified purchase
After reading everyone else's thoughts, I think it not out of play to join in... I watched this last night with a friend, and was quite entertained. I did not think too deeply on the message of the filme, for I did not feel there was much of a message but to tell a story and amuse you the viewer. The plot line was a little confused, simply because it was not clear this was going anywhere... however, I found the performances quite enjoyable, some of the song/dance numbers captivating enough to go back and see a second time, and my girl Kate Hudson leapt off the screen in a performance I never thought one might associate with her. Penelope Cruz heated up our living room, and I counted myself glad not to have any kids to wisk out of the room.

So, concluding my opinion, a fun movie and worth the rental (I bought mine), and worth a second viewing or more... but not for you if you need something more cerebral or soberly serious.

ARTSY, EUROPEAN, GREAT ACTING, WELL DEVELOPED CHARACTERS

WORTH WATCHING FOR DANIEL DAY-LEWIS WHO PERSONIFIES HIS MAIN CHARACTER.
LOVED ALL THE CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT.
PENELOPE CRUZ STEALS THE MOVIE DURING HER SEGMENT.
KATE HUDSON WAS A MATURE, SEXY STAND-OUT.
ALL THE WOMEN DID OUTSTANDING ACTING/SINGING.
