Radio Days [USA]
Descripción del producto
A “richly nostalgic” (Leonard Maltin) and star-studded portrait of the 1940s, Woody Allen’s Radio Days weaves together a young boy’s comical memories with zany stories from the golden age of radio, to create a delightful tapestry of heartwarming and hilarious vignettes. Expertly rendered and “densely packed with vivid detail” (The New York Times), Radio Days is “one of the loveliest eulogies a filmmaker has ever given to any bygone era” (L.A. Weekly)!
Gripped by wild radio stories about bloody wars and beautiful celebrities, 10-year-old Joe Needleman longs for adventure and dreams of the day he’ll see enemy spies, German subs - or even his sexy gradeschool teacher wearing a smile (and little else). But while Joe’s life is filled with fantasies about radio voices, the real people behind the voices have fantasies of their own. And as stars rise, careers fall and a nation hurtles toward the future, only one thing is absolutely certain: The days of radio may finally fade... but the magic of Joe’s memories will always endure."

The nostalgia of the 1930’s simply flows from the screen and pours over you – the whole thing is so very atmospheric, but also a superb feast for the eyes. It captures those ageless fashions when tailors were tailors! I just love the men’s & women’s fashions of the 20’s, 30’s & 40’s. The film won BAFTAS for Costume design & Production design. You are simply transported to that age – with the sets, the clothes and the music – Cole Porter and a lot of the big bands / orchestras of the period, there are 45 short tracks in the film!
The film is one of Allen’s more ‘Jewish’ films and it flows with his great little sketches and wonderful humour - the local kids nick Mum’s teeth and play hockey with them, as they haven’t a puck, and they’re about the right size!
Mia Farrow plays one of her best cameo roles for Woody Allen here, and looks just great, and rather sexy have I have to say - as the ‘cigarette seller,-a la ‘Trixie,’ from the ‘Rocky Horror Show.’ The way the film is screened as a 'life at home' period piece also reminded me of Terrence Davies, ‘Distant Voices, Still Lives.’ Like a few Woody films, this one barely broke even and yet it's possibly a lot of people's favourite 'WA' film?
I have Just one disappointment! This classic is out on Bluray in America.. But not here …(hears head thumping against a wall and a mature male crying!)
Although Allen does not actually appear in the film, his boyhood character does, played by Seth Green as the character Joe. Joe's parents are superbly played by Julie Kavner and Michael Tucker, who are 'poor but happy' as they struggle to raise Joe, and aspire to be like the stars of the radio that they listen to every day. As you might expect in a Woody Allen film, there are some superb running, and one-off, gags, such as Joe's father never revealing to his son what he does for a living (until Joe happens to hail a cab one day to find it being driven by his father), or the argument between Joe's parents over which ocean is the greater - the Pacific or the Atlantic.
Major roles are also given to two Allen regulars. Mia Farrow is excellent as the hat-check girl Sally White, whose ambition is to become a movie star or singer, but an ambition which tends to lead to her finding herself in compromising positions with a series of middle-aged male 'impressarios'. Dianne Wiest is also typically brilliant as Joe's Aunt Bea, who is constantly pursuing a fruitless search for love and marriage - in one typically hilarious scene, it is revealed to her that her target man's previous fiancee was actually a man!
Allen also casts some of his other regulars in more minor roles, such as Diane Keaton, Tony Roberts, Danny Aiello and Jeff Daniels.
For me, not quite up there with Allen's very best, but a beautiful, heart-warming film nevertheless.
Very nostalgic and family and kid stuff we can all relate to. Love it!
