Nine

This Holiday Season, Be Italian


Nine
This is Rob Marshall's musical followup to Chicago. It is the film version of a Broadway musical based on the film ''8½'' by Fellini. It tells the story of a once-succesful director, struggling to get his latest movie off the ground. Although filming has already started, he has yet to produce a script. He seeks solace in nine different women in his life, ranging from his wife and mistress through his leading lady to his deceased mother and a prostitute he knew as a kid. Reviews have been mixed.

5
Box Office
Pete Hammond quote iconNine is simply sensational and is indeed a worthy successor to his Best Picture winner, Chicago in every way.
15
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconNine is just plain adrift in its own lack of necessity.
10
eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconBy making a screen version of a Broadway musical adaptation of 8, Chicago director Rob Marshall has mostly succeeded in making a bad Fellini movie.
5
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconRob Marshall's flawed but frequently dazzling Nine is a hot-blooded musical fantasia full of song, dance, raging emotion and simmering sexuality.
15
ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconThrow out the one or two decent musical numbers, and the result is a lame offering that comes up considerably short of its titular number in terms of its artistic score.

Tomatometer quote icon It has a game, great-looking cast, led by the always worthwhile Daniel Day-Lewis, but Rob Marshall's Nine is chaotic and curiously distant.
