Surprisingly, for a non-musical fan, I truly enjoyed this movie. Surprisingly again, the movie didn’t get very good reviews from the critics. Ok, I got to admit, I’m not sure about cinematology, smart dialogues, integration of sequences of songs and dances, inspiring plots, storyline’s substance and etc etc that the movie critics were complaining that it was lacking, I just enjoyed the show as it is.
For me, it’s all about the Dance..
I love dance you see…
…and each piece of performance in the movie has stylish fairly raunchy routines and absolutely sizzling women!
A little bit on the movie, (I shall not spoil it for you) & more on the cast below…
Italian filmmaker Guido Contini (Daniel Day-Lewis) used to be universally held in awe as a director. But a recent string of box office failures have everyone suspecting that his creative streak has dried up & vanished.
Guido himself has lost inspiration, and he wants to be left alone to think, but the financial backers and producer won’t give him the time and space he desires in order to be creative. He needs help – and fast – or there will be no movie. Inspiration comes in the form of several muses – all women but none of these woman can provide him with the inspiration necessary to complete the script, except his long-suffering wife Luisa, (Marion Cotillard). But she’s had had enough of Guido’s philandering and lying, and without her help, Guido can’t get his act together enough to pen down anything.
Fergie, as the corrupting Sarraghina (a whore Guido knew as a child). Yup, Guido’s philandering ways started really early!
Nicole Kidman’s portrayal as Contini’s muse.
As Guido’s fiery mistress, Penelope Cruz sizzles.
One of the electrifying dance routines…
So, what are you waiting for? Go watch it!
Director: Rob Marshall.
