"VOGUE'S" AMAZING COVER WITH "NINE'S" LADIES NICOLE KIDMAN, KATE HUDSON, MARION COTILLARD AND PENELOPE CRUZ


November issue of "Vogue" has the girls from the upcoming musicle "Nine" on its cover. Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, Marion Cotillard and Penelope Cruz are gracing the cover of the popular magazine. Together with movie legends Judi Dench and Sophia Loren, pop star Fergie and Daniel Day Lewis they star in the longly awaited musical directed by Rob Marshall. With so many leading ladies, this movie needed a lot of stunning costumes, so Oscar award winning designer Colleen Atwood ("Memoirs of a Geisha", "Gattaca", "Chicago", "Planet of the Apes") had created couture-like fashions that date back to the ’20s. The ladies will sing and dance in 350 costumes and 200 pairs of shoes using a lot of frills, satin, lace, sexy pants and floating dresses combined with unavoidable ostrich feather fans.
The movie tells the story of Guido Contini (Daniel Day-Lewis), a world famous famous film director as he confronts an epic mid-life crisis with both creative and personal problems. He must balance the many women of his life, including his wife (Marion Cotillard), his mistress (Penelope Cruz), his film star muse (Nicole Kidman), his confidant and costume designer (Judi Dench), an American fashion journalist (Kate Hudson), the whore from his youth (Fergie) and his mother (Sophia Loren).

  1. That's really impressive work on a part of costume design and creating (sawing and the rest...) :)
    I look forward to seeing it on screen, as everything else about this movie of course. :)

  2. Me to, I can't wait to see Judi Dench and her young colleagues working together. The only problem for me, is the director, I didn't like any of Marshall's previous projects. CHICAGO was a really boring movie, and it looked more like a theatrical than cinematical project. And GEISHA was visually beautiful, but didn't have soul, that special something, so it turned out to be quite cold.

  3. Chicago was OK for me, although it seem "weird" at some moments. Most musicals seem a little weird at some moments to me. :)

    Geisha on the outer hand, seemed like a straightforward (school book kind) film direction to me. No weird or out of place stuff. And it was visually beautiful. I only wish that type of story had been more to my kind.

    I think we should reference (expect) more from Marshall's direction of Chicago than from his work on Geisha. After all, Chicago and Nine share the same genre.

  4. That's exactly the reason for my skepticism: the fact that he lacks directorial vision in making musicals.

  5. He has directorial vision in making musicals. :)Success (and awards) of his Chicago prove that.
    It's a totally different thing that you Dez don't like his vision at at all, or that I find his Chicago a little weird. Different men, different tastes... You didn't like Mamma Mia at all (I on the other hand did like it), and that movie was also a great success.
    As in everything else, majority decides on what's likeable (in general terms). :)

  6. I do not agree, he did get Oscar acclaim for CHICAGO, but that's because American's like that musical so much, it's been extremely successful over at Broadway. A lot of other movie experts outside USA, consider that movie cold and monotonous without some special personal touch.
    The only positive parts of that movie were Zeta's and Latifah's performances.

    I never said I didn't like MAMMA MIA "at all". I didn't like the plot and direction. I liked most of the actors, sets and songs. However, again most critics shared my judgment on that movie considering it a bit too shallow plotwise and a bit too "visionless".

    Funny how you use the last sentence of your post only when it suits your argument, Belsy :PPPP

  7. Again you think "your circles" are in majority instead of mine. And again I find your sources insignificant. :)
    Funny how you consider negative opinions of some movie critics worthy only when it suits you. :)) It's a well known fact that their opinions are mostly on a negative side. Especially with some genres, like comedies, horrors, and musicals.
    Chicago got (critics) awards/recognition in USA. And those are the only critics that really matter. Again, it's a well known fact that musical genre is recognised, filmed, (and loved) almost entirely in USA. And India, but that's a little different. Same as let say... SF genre.
    It is really simple for me - if you don't make films in that genre, you have no authority to criticise them. :))
    And really Dez, what's your point in seeking strong plot, "vision" (whatever that may be in any particular case), in things like musicals? It's really a moot point. Majority of viewers seek no such things in musicals. At least not with a same fervor as in some other, more serious film genres. Trying to get a critics opinion is pretty much useless, especially when you known how they treat particular genres.

  8. You should finally sit down and watch MOULIN ROUGE and then you would know what a good musical, with warm story and stunning directorial vision is :)

    Sto se tice MOJIH i TVOJIH krugova, obrati paznju da smo sukob imali samo kada se zaista radi o oblasti u kojoj sam ja ipak veci expert od tebe (mada tebe smatram svojim omiljenim strucnjakom za sve redom) a to su svakako mjuzikli i svetska muzika, za koje si sam rekao da ih ne pratis i ne gledas, dok sam ja i jednom i drugom posvetio gotovo citav svoj zivot, dakle 30 godina pomnog pracenja. Eto, to me iznervira, kada se neko prepire sa mnom oko necega oko cega ipak ima manje iskustva. Ja se nikada ne bih u toj meri raspravljao sa tobom o stripovima, fantastici i racunarima recimo, jer si ti tu milion svetlosnih godina ispred mene.

  9. Ustvari se raspravljamo oko Tvojih favorita i onih koje Ti ne volis, znaci sa obe strane "emocionalnog" spektra. Ti si mnogo vise emecionalno vezan za neke stvari i zato ja mislim (mozda pogresno) da nisi sasvim racionalan u tim situacijama. Ma koliko bio ekspert u tim stvarima.
    Ja recimno nisam skoro uopste vezan (emocionalno) za te stvari oko kojih smo raspravljali, i zato mislim (mozda opet pogresno) da realnije od tebe pristupam tim pitanjima.
    Za razliku od vecine ljudi (pa i tebe Dez), ja (skoro) tacno znam u kojim stvarima izrazavam cisto svoje licno misljenje. Nisam bas hladnokrvni Vulkanac, ali znam sta je realno a sta nije. Nije dovoljno biti samo ekspert u necem, potrebno je i biti neutralan.

  10. Dokaz da si ti emocionalno previse vezan (a samim tim i pristrasan), je sto se iznerviras za stvari u kojima mislis da si ekspert i da si u pravu.
    Ja se recimo ne bi nimalo uzrujavao oko necega za sta sam "siguran" da sam u pravu. Samo bih smatrao da je moj "suparnik" pogresio ili zato sto ne pristupa mirne glave problemu, ili zato sto nema prave/dovoljne informacije da bi se slozio sa mojim stavom.

    Pokusaj tako i ti Dez u raspravama sa mnom i nece te boleti glava. :))

  11. e, vidis ja bas ne mislim da si uvek neutralan. Cak naprotiv. Mislim da si ti jednostavno osoba koja ce uvek voditi raspravu just for the sake of the argument. Oduvek sam bio uveren da bi ti da ti daju da ubedis narod da je crno belo, to i uspesno ucinio, ali da ti onda kazu da ih ubedis da je zapravo belo crno, ti bi opet to ucinio. Zato sam vise puta i rekao da bih da mi se ne daj boze nesto desi u kriminalno-pravnom smislu, tebe prvog zvao da mi budes advokat :)

    Sto se tice emotivne vezanosti za odredjene teme, to je ono sto ljude cini toplokrvnima a ne hladnokrvnim bicima i razdvaja nas od robota i mase. Sve to proistice iz moje vecne borbe protiv nepravde, jer zbog cinjenice da se kvaliteti i dobrota cesto ne cene, nikada nisam voleo cinizam, mediokritete i ostala zla koja ruse sve sto je dobro i pozitivno (ovo se naravno ne odnosi na tebe :))

  12. Mislim da sam cak bio pomalo cinik dok sam bio mladji. :) Sada bas i nisam, samo tako cesto "hladno" nastupam. Ali sam u sustini velika dobrica. :)) Znam da kada igram RPG (role-play) igre uvek ispadne da igram kao neki paladin (sveti-ratnik). Cak i kad pokusam da uzmem/igram sa nekim drugacijim karakterom (lopov, varvarin, placenik itd) opet na kraju igre budem "veoma dobar" (pomazem civilima i bez novcane nadoknade :)) ).

  13. blago tebi, ja igrice nisam igrao bar jedno deset godina.

  14. Ja igram ili RPG gde se osecam kao da citam neku (naucno) fantasticnu knigu, ili strateske igre gde se osecam kao general. To je meni zabava, a ne one igre koje vecina naziva zabavnim igrama. (Ne da mislim da te "ostale" igre nisu zabavne.)
    Mada dosta retko koristim kompjuter za takve stvari. Bar ne poslednjih nekoliko godina. :(

  15. jedina igrica koju sam ja ikada igrao bese upravo strateska AGE OF EMPIRES, ali sam je igrao samo da bi gradio gradove i tvrdjave i tako to, i uvek sam dizao milion predstrazi i izvidnica kako mi neprijatelj ne bi navukao rat pred prag:) vec da mogu na miru da uzivam u kopanju zlata, pecanju i vadjenju gvozdja iz rudnika i izgradnji kuca i zgrada po svom carstvu.
