Which movie am I gonna watch tonight?
The Ninth Gate
Directed by Roman Polanski
Starring: Johnny Depp, Lena Olin, Frank Langella, Emmanuelle Seigner
I love books.
I love movies.
I love books about books and movies about books.
So here I am watching this movie about books based on a book about books…
If you then add some Roman Polanski, Johnny Depp, Lena Olin and put it all in an intriguing and pseudo occult European setting, you get a must see film!
It is also one of those films that you understand and appreciate better each time you watch it.
By the way if the book The Club Dumas by Arturo Pérez-Reverte , which this film is based on, crosses your path, read it it’s very good!
