Stranger Than Paradise 0+

Jim Jarmusch, USA / D 1984, English version / Czech subtitles, 89 min

Americanized immigrant Bela Molnar AKA Willie is not particularly proud of his origin, that’s why he’s not overjoyed when his sixteen year old Hungarian cousin comes to visit him. However, he gradually understands that they have in common more than he’d expected. A minimalistic story following several characters and a crude black and white camera meet in Jarmusch’s second movie in order to question with scathing irony the stereotypical image of the US as dreamland.  This cult movie stars Jarmusch’s favorite composer and occasional actor John Lurie together with Eszter Balint.
