Let's be clear about "The Ninth Gate": the movie is easily one of Roman Polanski's best, and certainly one of the most deliciously creepy, eerie, unsettling and deeply atmospheric films about diabolism and deviltry ever made.
With a script drawn from Spanish author Arturo Perez Reverte's quirky "Le Club Dumas", "The Ninth Gate" is the Faustian tale of an unscrupulous New York dealer in rare books (played with tactful understatement and curiosity by Johnny Depp) commissioned by secretive tycoon and rare book collector Boris Balkan (played to the hilt by Frank Langella, who nearly steals the show)to authenticate his copy of the Nine Gates to the Kingdom of Shadows (De Umbrarum Regni Novem Portis).
That innocent-sounding assignment isn't nearly as easy as it sounds. For one thing, there are three copies of the demonic tome, printed by a 17th century Venetian bookbinder (later burned at the stake for his troubles) and reputedly capable of summoning Satan; Balkan wants Corso to examine the two other volumes (one in Spain, the other in Paris) and determine which is the forgery.
Another complication lies with Balkan's book: its previous owner hanged himself shortly after selling his volume to Balkan, and his wealthy widow (played by a supple and cat-like Lena Olin) wants it back. And if that weren't enough, as Corso is drawn deeper into the mystery, those around him begin to die horribly and mysteriously.

i loved this movie.i bought it on DVD with really no expectations.boy,
was i pleasantly surprised.the performances were excellent, the music
was perfect for the film. Depp gives an understated performance which
kept me riveted for the whole movie.Frank Langella is brilliantly cast
as the bad guy.Emmanuaelle Seigner was particularly effective as the
mysterious girl who always seems to show up where Depp's character,
Dean Corso happens to be to lend a helping hand. but of course all is
not as it seems, as the ending reveals.the ending reveals just enough
to tease the viewer.i can find no fault with this movie.many people
complained about the ending, but i thought the ending was as it should
be, leaving the viewer to wonder what might happen next, which was, i
think the point.all of the deaths in the movie were very creepy and
eerie.i had not seen a Polanski movie before,but he really impressed me
with this effort.I have watched this movie several times and loved it
each time.to those people who hated this movie, all i can say is"to
each their own"and maybe it is an acquired taste.this movie is
definitely in my top ten.

i really loved this film.i had no expectations going in,so i was pleasantly surprised.i thought all the performances were great.Frank Langella was brilliant.but is it Johnny Depp in the lead role who was really impressive.Depp puts in another quietly understated performance.the music was also perfect for this movie.it really brings out the suspense and creepiness factor.i thought the move was very stylistic and atmospheric.the tone is very dark,which is good,because the movie delves pretty deeply into dark territory.all i will say about that aspect is that it involves the occult.but the movie also has some substance and certainly raises some questions.it's certainly thought provoking.most of all,though,it's just entertaining.i don't always like Roman Polanski's movies,but he really impressed with this one.i highly recommend it.my vote for the "The Ninth Gate":5/5

I love "The Ninth Gate". I have seen it many times since I first rented it back in the summer of 2000, and after buying it about a year or so later I have always made it a point to view it regularly. Director Roman Polanski has given us another masterpiece of horror with some good touches of comedy, all wrapped up in a cloak of atmosphere so thick that you could cut it with a knife. While I am not a die-hard fan of Polanski in the way I am with directors such as Tim Burton, I have seen and enjoyed very much three of his films: "Rosemary's Baby", "The Fearless Vampire Killers", and "Frantic", and have observed elements found in each of those three movies to be definitely present in this one. "The Ninth Gate" obviously has its maker's fingerprints all over it, which is good news for fans of his work.
"The Ninth Gate" works great as a detective story, which is really what it is more a horror film. Johnny Depp, my favorite actor hands down, takes us on a bizarrely fascinating journey through Portugal and France hoping to track down two of the three remaining copies of a book apparantly written by Satan himself during the Middle Ages. Along the way, we watch him being followed and see some suspicious setbacks occur, along with his dealings with his employer, a millionaire Satanist by the name of Boris Balkan.
The good things I have to say about this film: first, the directing is fantastic, atmospheric and spellbinding. You will be totally immersed in the goings-on of this film, in spite of its numerous quiet and thoughtful moments and overall slow-moving nature. The European location work is gorgeous ... we see some beautiful and sinister cities, castles, and countrysides. The movie looks and feels great.
