THIS HOLIDAY SEASON, BE ITALIAN.

nineAfter a recent string of failures, famous Italian film director Guido Contini (Daniel Day-Lewis) is looking to all the women in his life for inspiration‚ĶThis filmization of the Broadway musical (that was originally inspired by Federico Fellini‚Äôs¬†8¬Ĺ¬†(1963)) may be a disappointment coming from the director who made the excellent¬†Chicago¬†(2002)‚Ķ but it‚Äôs still worth a look. Shot at Cinecitt√† (where Fellini made movies), the filmmakers expertly stage and photograph beautiful scenarios that are as much eye candy as all the women. A weak story about a suffering male ego is boosted by a few engaging musical moments.
