MovieMail's Review

Far more people wrote about 9 Songs than bothered to see it - its many scenes of actual penetrative sex, oral sex and masturbation were a gift to the ever-outraged tabloids, whilst soi-disant sophisticates queued up to label the film boring and untitillating. Michael Winterbottom, one of the UK’s most unpredictable directors, juggles three narrative strands - we see the couple fucking, the couple going to see concerts at the Brixton academy, and the man, now working in the South Pole looking back on the ended relationship months later. Whether you love or hate this film depends on your personal reaction to the relationship depicted - Winterbottom’s apparent theory that the main things one remembers from a relationship are the sex and the music is not for all. Nevertheless, the film is refreshingly matter-of-fact (this is not a trenchant study of sexual desire in the Breillat vein, simply a depiction of a relationship), and the live performances, which include The Dandy Warhols, Franz Ferdinand and Michael Nyman, are frequently electrifying. 9 Songs is an unusual and daring film in an industry that increasingly favours mainstream conformism.

Film Description

One of the most sexually explicit and yet least pornographic films to have been given a mainstream release, Winterbottom tells the story of an affair played out in bed and through music (the 9 songs of the title featuring Primal Scream, Super Furry Animals, Franz Ferdinand and Von Bondies among others). Highly-praised, provocative filmmaking. Winterbottom calls it his 'concert film'.
