It's an over-the-top, eye-popping musical that doesn't completely satisfy, especially compared to it's original source classic.

It has a lot to gnaw on, but it's worth gnawing on.

Sensual musical about love and art has mature themes.

Nine is a searing, carthartic dissection of the creative process; as much as it celebrates the trappings accumulated by those who succeed, it is also an engrossing examination of the deeply-troubled mindset that gets them there.
Wesley Lovell
Cinema Sight
April 2, 2010
An uneven arrangement of musical numbers surrounding a stage-to-screen adaptation that was a screen-to-stage adaptation in the first place.

Nine combines a dream cast with a dreamy script and score for a thoughtful and enjoyable musical about art, life and love.

The lasting impression of Rob Marshall's musical Nine is almost... but not quite.

Every song is a character reading with a revelation to convey as Guido desperately tries to sort out his future as artist, husband and lover.

Looking fabulously expensive and fairly raunchy, Marshall's elaborate treatment here's helped immeasurably, of course, by that amazing international female cast.

Despite the A-list cast, this musical tale of a 1960's Italian film director with writer's block lacks the sense of passion, mystery and pain that should accompany any journey into the imagination of frustrated artistic genius.

The film's only fault is that it lacks the driving narrative force that Marshall had with Chicago, which may be the fault of the original author of the libretto, but it results in the film losing momentum between the awesome musical sequences.

Nine is bold enough to embrace Fellini's self-defeating smirk about movies being "dead" as soon as they leave their creator's mind.

A musical feast for the mind and the eye; Marion Cotillard steals the show

Enjoyable, but lighter, slighter and a good deal less offensive to feminists than Fellini's film.

So-so scoring and the sense you're watching filmed theatre rather than a movie proper. But whether or not you care about Day-Lewis' tortured auteur, it's another magnetic performance, backed by displays of motion and emotion from a bevy of icons.

Truth be told, it's a good, but not a great, movie, and one well worth seeing if you like musicals. But see it fast. It probably won't be in theaters very long.

Nine doesn't achieve the dynamic range that might have made it far more captivating than it is.

At bottom, what you have is a good film of a fairly good show of a brilliant movie.

Marshall has always been marvelous at painting with bodies and light, and this film benefits from that touch immensely because of the abstraction of most of the songs.It may not make you a fan of the show, but it should make you a fan of Rob Marshall and
