Johansson/Goode ~ Match Point

From the Back Cover

Jeune professeur de tennis issu d'un milieu modeste, Chris Wilton (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers) se fait embaucher dans un club huppé des beaux quartiers de Londres. Il ne tarde pas à sympathiser avec Tom Hewett (Matthew Goode), un jeune homme de la haute société avec qui il partage sa passion pour l'opéra. Très vite, Chris fréquente régulièrement les Hewett et séduit Chloé (Emily Mortimer), la sœur de Tom. Il fait aussi la connaissance de la ravissante fiancée de Tom, Nola Rice (Scarlett Johansson), une jeune Américaine venue tenter sa chance comme comédienne en Angleterre. Très attiré par elle, Chris cherche aussitôt à la séduire. Dans un moment de faiblesse, Nola lui cède une fois. Elle décide ensuite de repousser ses avances pour préserver sa relation avec Tom qu'elle souhaite épouser. De son côté, Chris continue de fréquenter Chloé et voit sa situation professionnelle et sociale se métamorphoser grâce au père fortuné de celle-ci. Il l'épouse au bout de quelques mois. Parallèlement, Tom quitte Nola, car il veut se marier avec une femme du même milieu social que lui. Nola décide alors de repartir en Amérique afin de mettre ses idées en ordre vu son échec anglais, aussi bien personnel que professionnel. Mais un jour, lors d'une exposition, Chris Wilton retombe sur Nola, revenue en Angleterre. Ils reprennent leur aventure. Chris ment de plus en plus souvent à Chloé, et Nola finit par tomber enceinte. Chris est tiraillé entre un amour pour Chloé dont il n'est pas très sûr et une grande passion charnelle pour Nola. Il ne parvient pas à être sincère avec sa femme et à lui dire qu'il veut la quitter pour Nola. Des sentiments tumultueux se heurtent dans sa tête et vont perturber sa raison…

This cd is not compatible for dvd's in Canada so I don't know why you are selling this. They said I would get a refund and I still haven't received it. I would have loved to get this cd it is not available in Canada. I did see this movie on television and liked it so much I would have liked to see it again. The music in this movie was incredible. It was"mi pard'udirancora" by Enrico Caruso. I don't usually like Woody Allen's movie but this one was so enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A matter of luck May 15 2009
By Kona TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Chris Wilton (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) is a former tennis pro who begins work at a London tennis club. He meets a wealthy family, befriends the son and romances the daughter. Things are looking good for Chris as he starts to move up the corporate ladder, and then he meets would-be actress Nola (Scarlett Johansson).

I knew nothing of this movie beforehand and assumed it was just a poor-boy-makes-good story; then came the last twenty minutes and I was shocked. The movie changed completely and I loved it. The Woody Allen film has been rightly compared with Hitchcock's work. Indeed, Chris is quite similar to Ray Milland's character in Dial M For Murder; both are charming, retired/washed-up tennis stars and pretty boys who marry well and aren't big on ethics. While both Meyers and Johansson underplay their parts and lack chemistry together, the story is so good that I thoroughly enjoyed it. The movie is expertly directed and has a strong British supporting cast; heartily recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars another well crafted effort by Woody Allen Oct. 19 2007
By falcon
Format:DVD
Match Point,written and directed by Woody Allen,is a romantic drama set
in London.Jonathon Rys Meyers plays Chris Wilton,a former pro tennis
player who tales a job as a tennis instructor at a an upper class club
in London.he quickly forms a friendship with Tom Hewitt(Matthew
Goode)one of his students,who introduces him to his upper crust
family,including his sister Chloe.(Emily Mortimer)Chris and Chloe soon
begin a romance.However,Chris becomes smitten with Tom's fiancé,Nola
Rice(Scarlet Johansson).Chris and Nola have a brief affair.Nola moves
away and Chris does not see her for a year.However,in a chance
meeting,he runs into her again and they begin a prolonged,torrid
affair.Chris and Chloe have Married by this time,and Chris has risen
quickly in the ranks of his father in law's(Brian
Cox)company.eventually the time comes when Chris must decide between
his wife,Chloe and his mistress Nola.remaining with Chloe assures Chris
of the continued extravagant lifestyle he has become accustomed
to,while leaving Chloe for Nola would mean losing all the wealth and
privilege he has achieved.More complication arise as something
unexpected occurs,forcing Chris to make a surprising and life altering
decision.this movie is well written,with very good dialogue and
interesting characters and dilemmas.Tom Hewitt plays Chris Wilton as
charming,suave,and self confident. His seduction of Nola comes across
as real and authentic.Nola,played by Scarlett Johansson is woman who
knows the effect she has on men and is more than eager to play the
game.However,she lacks self confidence as an aspiring actress and is
emotionally vulnerable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crimes and Misdemeanors, Act II July 30 2006
Format:DVD
Matchpoint is a followup to Allen's earlier film, Crimes and Misdemeanors, and shows how his thinking has evolved. Crimes explored the question of good vs evil and whether there was a god in the universe, and seemed to answer in the negative. Matchpoint picks up where Crimes left off and posits the question: if there is no god, then what determines the good (and bad) fortune of men? His answer: chance. Or dumb, blind luck. And the central character, an erstwhile tennis pro turned wouldbe financier, is certainly lucky. Most of it is plausible, except maybe the end. Maybe I've been spoiled by CSI, but I have to believe the real-life London PD would have got their man, the errant ring notwithstanding.

A good film, but it lacks the emotional punch of Crimes. It also doesn't have any of Allen's trademark humor. For good or bad, Woody plays it straight here. I can't wait for his next comedy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Woody Allen's best film since Annie Hall April 25 2006
Format:DVD
People wondering when Woody Allen would suprise us again with a phenomenal film: the wait is over. Match Point is a huge change for Allen, and it fits like a glove. He doesn't try to mix comedy and drama, but does it suprisingly straight forward and the result is mezmerizing. After this long, did any one see it coming? I don't think so. This suprising a turn for Allen is almost as suprising as this films final act. Bravo.
