    Rob Marshall's flawed but frequently dazzling Nine is a hot-blooded musical fantasia full of song, dance, raging emotion and simmering sexuality. show more

    We'd all like to live in an Italian movie. So says a character in Nine, and it's probably the best line in this musical misfire. show more

    I loved the movie. The main character, Guido lives through his internal mirage of sensations and visions, he allows his inner experience to create a wall around him, shielding him from the pain and from the emotional experience of the people that surrounds him in the outer world. He can\'t resist surrendering to the creations of his mental and emotional inner experience, leaving everyone that loves him or needs him behind. The question here is, is he wrong or is he right? If he is so lucky as to have a rich soul that demands all of his consciousness, should we blame him for that ? isn\'t that the very thing that makes him so irresistible? should we just pity the unsuspecting women that fall under his spell unaware that he will never see them as they see them? He does appreciate their beauty and their souls, but his loyalty remains with the call of his own soul. A much more powerful and alluring mistress that tolerates no competition. The visuals are stunning and the music is great, I would love to see a classic myth brought about in this style by the director of Nine.

    You really have to pay attention on how the movie is interpreted by the songs the women sing, and then you're in. Kate Hudson, in partincular, did an extraordinary performance. Who knew? Especially, if you rent it, then you can see the actual recordings and see the extraordinary work and peerformances, and the meaning behind the songs. This is not just a movie for ******************* a story that's told really well through song and dance. I rented it and watched it over and over again. The more I watched it, the more I was enthralled. This isn't AVATAR (basically popular bacause of special effects). This is a really good story told really well through music. I think it's right up there with "Fiddler on the Roof."
