    No me parece raro valorar tanto a 9 SONGS. Es más, saber que para muchos es aburrida ó carente de gracia me hace disfrutarla un tanto más. Claro, la vi en un momento idóneo en mi vida. Quizá verla hoy, con más años encima no será lo que fue. Sin embargo, en el 2005, solo hubo 3 películas que puse encima de ella: (3) Kiss Kiss Bang Bang [que bien pudo ser un título alternativo para esta]; (2) Batman Begins;…

    I first saw this film when it came out back in 2004 and it's something I've returned to many times.

    It might not be perfect but I admire what Winterbottom set out to do - depict the life of a relationship through the sexual aspects alone.

    What was interesting on this viewing was how realistic I found this - without going into too many details, I found myself thinking about past 'short-run' relationships and realised, with a little shock, that…

    The most explicit British film ever made? The film is structured around nine songs, mainly filmed at the Brixton Academy, as we watch the couple's relationship unravel through their sexual exploits. All this footage was unsimulated which was extremely effective. Just as in Foxcatcher we learnt so much about the brothers' relationship as they practice wrestling, so we learn about the couple through sex here. It's extremely intimate and never feels like it's out to shock. Rather it makes for…

    Is this a good movie? Well, no, not really. But that's almost entirely the point, I think. Listening to Winterbottom explain 9 Songs it becomes apparent that he really wanted to make about five different films at this point in his career, and rather than devote himself to each individually, he has blended the ideas into one, almost incomprehensibly vague novella of a film. There is a bit of arty porn, mixed with a film about the antarctic and a…

    What Winterbottom succeeds to do here is make a mainstream feature film without narrative structure and with explicit sex scenes. With regular porn there is always a definite angle to the action and usually we see everything from the point of view of the guy. Here it is more like passing a doorway and noticing a couple, pausing to watch and simply enjoying the inherent eroticism in watching two people cavorting sexually. Splendid.

    Its a lovely movie, two actors shows expresses themselves in that short period of time. I think its what one would love to do when given the opportunity.

    This is one of those films you should watch every ten years, if anything just to use it to judge how your own tastes, character and maturity development. I can certainly say my second experience of it was different, and more informative. A film to review yourself by.

    Matt is in Antarctic on account of his job. While he is there he remember the relationship he left. The rest of the movie is made up of flash backs on his relationship with Lisa. All the flash backs contain when Matt and Lisa are at the concerts they attend; 9 concerts in all, and when they are having sex.

    What is annoying and so interesting about 9 songs is that there is no story line. As the movie is…

    Pariskunta harrastaa rock -konserteissa käymistä ja panemista. Ensimmäistä vähemmän, toista reilusti enemmän.

    Juoni puuttuu, mutta annetaan pisteet rohkeudesta. Kaikki näytetään, lähikuvissa.

    Πολλοί το θεωρούνε τσόντα. Δεν είναι. Οκ, έχει (αληθινό) σεξ, αλλά έχει και (ωραία) μουσική και μας δείχνει όλα τα στάδια μιας σχέσης.

    Αγαπημένο quote:

    Exploring the Antarctic is like exploring space. You enter a void, thousands of miles, with no people, no animals, no plants. You're isolated in a vast, empty continent. Claustrophobia and agoraphobia in the same place, like two people in a bed.
