The Jim Jarmusch Collection - Volume One

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Triple bill of movies directed by Jim Jarmusch.

In 'Permanent Vacation' (1980), in downtown Manhattan a 20-something boy (Chris Parker), whose father is not around and whose mother is institutionalised, is a big Charlie Parker fan. As he subconsciously searches for more meaning in his life, he meets a host of interesting characters.
In 'Stranger Than Paradise' (1984), Willie (John Lurie) is a Hungarian living in New York. His relatives ask him to look after his young cousin Eve (Eszter Balint) and he reluctantly agrees. After a few days they become affectionately close, but she leaves after only ten days with him.
Finally, in 'Down By Law' (1986), stuck together in a New Orleans prison, convicts Zack (Tom Waits) and Jack (Lurie) are constantly at each other's throats. But then Roberto (Roberto Begnini), an Italian who speaks non-stop fractured English, joins them in their cell and becomes the object of their mutual disdain. Nevertheless, it is Roberto who brings the trio together long enough to organise a jailbreak.

Used, but like new.

'If you're a fan of independent cinema, these films will be right up your street'.
