I went to see Nine and loved it.
I read that some are upset and preferred Chicago. I did not like Chicago. Maybe it is why I like Nine :-)
No, the reason why I like it is this. When I was a little girl, the Italian movies were at their best and made Europe dream. My sister brought movie magazines home, and they were full of images that made me dream, although I never saw most of those films. I loved the dresses and hairdos too. And Nine is just the same. An old movie magazine come true, with beautiful dresses.
And I think Daniel Day Lewis is perfect in that role. Marion Cotillard too, if you ask me. I found she was touching.
What a nice touch to have Sophia Loren in the cast, she was our goodess then, wasn't she?
And isn't it a pleasure to see women with real curves in that film?
PS: A funny thing, I keep saying "neen", as in provencal, not as the English word. The lady at the counter must have thought I was totally illiterate :-) (I went to see the English version). Here, you would call a dear little girl "ma Nine" (my sweetie). I guess Guido would have called his lovers Nine, if he were from Provence :-).
