Sweet And Lowdown
  • 2000
  • US
  • 95 min

  • Directed by: Woody Allen
  • Written by: Woody Allen
  • Cast: Sean Penn, Samantha Morton, Anthony LaPaglia, Uma Thurman

Penn is simply awesome as 1930s musician Emmet Ray, the self-proclaimed second best guitar player in the world. Respect for the 'gypsy guitar man' Django Reinhardt is Ray's sole element of humility; he is rude, egomaniacal and utterly selfish and the one who suffers most is the mute Hattie (the splendid Morton). Visually, musically, dramatically and comedically, 'Sweet And Lowdown' can sit comfortably among Woody Allen's best works. And with the passing of cinematic time, they will surely be reflected upon as his lead pair's finest hour and a half.
