‘Nine’, the recent movie musical adaptation of the hit stage show swings on to Region B locked Blu-ray with an unremarkable 1080p AVC/MPEG-4 transfer framed in the widescreen 2.35:1 aspect ratio. A slight lack of vibrancy make the colours fail to pop , but good skin tones, contrast and deep blacks are all there to please the eye.
The DTS-HD MA 5.1 surround mix makes up for the lack of visual zing with a well balanced track that combines crispness with a pure sound to make the female voice led numbers sound full bodied and rich.
Extras by the shovelful, including an informative commentary track make this a must for those who like to see behind the scenes of a movie musical.
Sadly, despite starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Judy Dench, Nicole Kidman and Penelope Cruz this potential box office winner fails to set the screen alight in the story of a movie director on the verge of a nervous breakdown, based on Fellini’s ‘8-1/2’.
