“Page one… Page one…” Thiz movie is simply a beautiful girl exhibition. The story is centered on Guido Contini (Daniel Day-Lewis), the movie director who experiences mystification between his profession and love affairs among all women he has ever known in his life. The movie is directed by Rob Marshall who is well-known for his musical filmography like “Chicago” (2002). The Cast members are filled with various Actresses such as Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, Stacy Ferguson (from the pop group “Black Eyed Peas”) and even the senior ones like Judi Dench and Sophia Loren. But I think that the best performance belongs to Marion Cotillard as Guido’s wife. Like I thought before, thiz movie would be sort of Broadway parade. The dance choreography shows nothing new, we have already seen it in “Chicago”. The stage setting is also a minus, almost in entire movie we see at the same stage setting. The story is rare of conflict. Marshall brings character introductions all over the movie from beginning to the end. We are about to see some kind of “American Idol” contest on every Actress. If thiz is how we play the game, I think the winner would be Kate Hudson who successfully performs a joyful and glamour segment. It comes to my mind, thiz movie is only a form of Marshall’s narcissism. It’s very obvious to me that the movie intends to uncover the mysterious world of women. We could friend with her, kiss her, dance with her or even marry her, but no matter what we do, the middle name of every woman will always be known as mystery.
