Famous film director Guido Contini struggles to find harmony in his professional and personal lives, as he engages in dramatic relationships with his wife, his mistress, his muse, his agent, and his mother.
Arrogant, self-centered movie director Guido Contini (Daniel Day-Lewis) finds himself struggling to find meaning, purpose, and a script for his latest movie endeavor. With only a week left before shooting begins, he desperately searches for answers and inspiration from his wife, his mistress, his muse, and his mother. As his chaotic profession steadily destroys his personal life, Guido must find a balance between creating art and succumbing to its obsessive demands.Written by

Kate Hudson mentioned in an interview with Oprah Winfrey in November 2009 that it took about six weeks to rehearse her number "Cinema Italiano", and about two days to film. She also said that making the movie was "maybe my best experience to date". See more »
When Guido drives up to the Cinecitta film studios in his open top Lancia with his producer as passenger, parked outside (to left) is a (quite distinctive) two tone white and blue paint job rear-engined (flat front radiator) car (another Lancia?): as soon as they pull up inside the lot, as they exit the car and walk around the lot, camera pulls back to show an exact same (license plate same /similar) car parked on other side.

If you are fan of musicals i can understand you really liking this movie, but in my opinion is Daniel Day-Lewis, Marion Cotillard and Penélope Cruz giving great performances with good coreography and a lot other things you can expect from a musical with this budget, visually is very well done, but the story is weak and some scenes fails on trying to being funny.
