Anyone who is familiar with classic cinema knows the above quote is not from this film, but rather from 1967′s COOL HAND LUKE. Though the two films are completely unrelated, the quote defines NINE perfectly. I feel nobody is understanding the film as it should be understood. NINE is not a film about plot or story, though as it is a film, a story is necessary. It’s a film about film, music, and–most importantly–beauty.
