Product description

Product Description

Woody Allen writes and directs this biographical study of fictional 1930s jazz guitarist and inveterate womaniser Emmet Ray (Sean Penn). Wandering the New Jersey seafront, Emmet meets mute laundress Hattie (Samantha Morton) and the two of them begin an affair. Together they travel to Hollywood and pursue brief screen careers, but Emmet's wandering eye makes the possibility of any lasting relationship unlikely, and before long he meets and falls for bohemian writer Blanche (Uma Thurman).

From Amazon.co.uk

Woody Allen makes beautiful music but only fitful comedy in Sweet and Lowdown the story of "the second greatest guitar player in the world." Sean Penn plays Emmett Ray, an irresponsible, womanising swing guitar player in Depression-era America who is guided by an ego almost as large as his talent. "I'm an artist, a truly great artist," he proclaims time and time again, and when he plays, soaring into a blissed-out world of pure melodic beauty, he proves it. Samantha Morton almost steals the film as his mute girlfriend Hattie, a sweet Chaplinesque waif who loves him unconditionally, and Uma Thurman brings haughty vigour to her role as a slumming socialite and aspiring writer who's forever analysing Emmett's peculiarities (like taking his dates to shoot rats at the city dump). The vignette-like tales are interspersed with comments by jazz aficionados and critics, but this is less a Zelig-like mockumentary than an extension of the self-absorbed portraits of Deconstructing Harry and Celebrity. The lazy pace drags at times and the script runs dry between comic centrepieces--the film screams for more of Allen's playful invention--but there's a bittersweet tenderness and an affecting vulnerability that is missing from his other recent work. Shot by Zhao Fei (The Emperor and the Assassin, Raise the Red Lantern), it's one of Allen's most gorgeous and colourful films in years, buoyed by toe-tapping music and Penn's gruffly charming performance. --Sean Axmaker, Amazon.com
