Product Description

Product Description

Poignant, romantic, and mesmerizing, writer/director Woody Allen's latest masterpiece centers around Jasmine (Cate Blanchett), a former New York socialite teetering on an emotional tightrope, balancing between her troubled east coast past and a fresh start in San Francisco. Having moved into her sister's humble apartment, Jasmine ricochets between the tumultuous acceptance of her new limitations, and the dreams of reclaiming her past life's glamour. Join a powerful cast for an intimate portrayal of the battle between fantasy and reality which rages within us all.

From the Back Cover

Lorsqu'elle était plus jeune, Jasmine a épousé un homme fortuné et a décidé d'abandonner ses études pour mener la vie des gens riches et célèbres. Mais son monde bascule complètement lorsque son époux est arrêté pour fraude : elle perd tous ses biens et, surtout, la notoriété dans laquelle elle aimait tant se complaire. S'avouant défaite, elle se résigne à cohabiter avec sa soeur et ses deux enfants dans leur petit appartement de San Francisco. Jasmine est en pleine névrose, mais tente de reprendre sa vie en main. Elle trouve un travail afin de ramasser assez d'argent pour suivre des cours d'informatique puis, ultimement, de décoration d'intérieur.

I bought a ticket to this movie knowing absolutely nothing about it, and almost immediately as it began I knew I was watching a Woody Allen movie.

I cannot say exactly why this is so. Perhaps it was the richness of the character study, and the fact that Allen writes so excellently for female characters. In any event, Cate Blanchett's character, and her brilliant performance of this down on her luck former socialite married to a conman husband played by Alec Baldwin, may be the best female character performance you will see on a movie screen this year, and Blanchett's performance is probably the most Oscar worthy I have seen so far.

Set in San Francisco in the present day it unfolds the complex relationship of two sisters, one upper class but fallen on hard times, and her working class sister who makes working class choices. Because it unfolds in a non linear fashion it appears to dip randomly into different events over a period of about 15 years or so, and we understand why the sister is working class.

One of the themes of the movie is honesty, and facing reality, and Jasmine makes choices that seem oblivious to it. She fibs and tells little lies, at one level self deceptive, and at another deceptive of others. We may not like her for this, but if you're like me, I felt tremendous compassion for her, even loved her in spite of everything, which is not often I feel that way about a character. She suffers from severe anxiety, and the events she has to undergo take a toll on her. One particular choice she makes has particularly severe repercussions, yet in the moment we fully understand it.

I think it is fair to say moving to Europe and making films there has been wonderful for Woody Allen.

This movie should not be missed by serious movie watchers. You don't have to like Woody, but you must love Cate. She is magnificent in this movie.
The blu-ray disc serves me well, and have no comments on UltraViolet stuff since I am a bit technically challenged...

Everyone seems to acknowledge that this brilliant film is Allen's homage to Tennessee Williams and, in particular, "A Streetcar Named Desire". No matter. It stands perfectly on its own as a cinematic gem and has a dream cast that most directors would die for. I haven't seen an actress get under the skin of a character better than Cate Blanchett does as Jasmine. She is a selfish, snobbish, strong-willed witch of a woman who arrives in San Francisco to live with her lower middle-class half-sister Ginger (brilliantly played by Sally Hawkins). Jasmine can be acerbic and funny, but, as we learn, she is falling apart mentally. Ginger's boyfriend Chili (also a fine performance) sees.through Jasmine in much the same way as Stanley Kowalski in "Streetcar". But, in spite of her haughtiness, and frequent cruelty to those in her sister's blue collar world, we root for Jasmine. Her redemption seems almost possible when she meets a rich self-absorbed State Department type on his way up (Peter Sarsgaard). "Blue Jasmine" is a rich, sophisticated, funny, tragic film. It is a must for any Woody Allen fan and any serious film-goer. Definitely one of 2013's best, and Blanchett rightly received the Best Actress Oscar. Any other choice would have been a real tragedy.

Cate Blanchett delivers a tour de force performance. A woman who had it all and lost it all The truth of how it was lost is revealed in slow layers like peeling an onion. She is very deluded and totally self absorbed. She tries to recapture what was lost and almost pulls it off, but her previous snubs come back to haunt her at a very timely moment. Her sister bounces back from her misguided choices and is basically happy,as she is easily satisfied. A great truth is shown, no matter how much people have they always want more. They bury their heads in the sand if it is more convenient to their own comfort to pretend they do not know dark secrets. It is an interesting look at the reckless people behind the meltdown in 2008. Woody Allen is like fine wine, getting even better with age.

I've seen this movie last night, on DVD, twice...one after the other. Most good movies benefit from replays and this one is no exception.

There are a lot of reasons to want to see this movie once and then twice. One is Cate Blanchett which I could see in no matter what, but to see her in an Oscar worthy performance is more than a treat. In fact, the entire cast is tops, the acting in this movie is just terrific.

As for the screenplay – I think that it’s one of the best ever written by Woody Allen. Only him could have thought and made a modern Streetcar Named Desire – a parallel which is present in every scene and action – all of this being a continuous source of delight and fun. I’m sure that Tennessee Williams would have laughed his head off to see his Blanche DuBois as Woody’s Blue Jasmine and would have approved whole heartedly of this funny version of his play.

If you didn’t read or see “A Streetcar Named Desire”, you could go with the film directed by Elia Kazan with Vivien Leigh as Blanche DuBois and Marlon Brando as Stanley Kowalski, Stella’s husband. The entire cast is excellent, but don’t expect to laugh because this is one of the most heart breaking plays of Tennessee.

“Blue Jasmine” is the perfect movie to see on a long flight just as you get to 10 000 feet and you get your first drink…and there is nowhere else to go but far in the sky.
