Song for a Sunday

I re-watched the film Nine a couple of days ago.  It got middling-to-poor reviews, and it’s true that the storytelling isn’t great, but the cast certainly is.  Unbelievably, in a film starring two of my favourites – Dame Judi Dench (showing how great she looks with a flapper bob) and Nicole Kidman – it was Marion Cotillard who stole the show.  That woman is simply brilliant.  And she sings what is easily my favourite song from the film: My Husband Makes Movies.  I love it so much that I can cope with the word ‘movie’ for once.  Here she is:

    Marion Cotillard is wonderful. She's also very good in Midnight in Paris and of course La Vie En Rose.
