Sweet & Lowdown (Woody Allen, USA, 1999)

The sense of period and place is assured, the music delicious, the performances terrific. Penn, particularly, is a joy to behold.
— Geoff Andrew, Time Out

Sean Penn stars as fictional jazz guitarist Emmet Ray, whose genius is fuelled by irresponsible living, booze, broads, and an obsession with Django Reinhardt. One of the last truly great Woody Allen films before the rot set in.
