Director - Jim Jarmusch
Genre - Comedy/Drama
Independent filmmaker Jim Jarmusch's official debut. This little movie shot in black and white with a shoe-string budget is quite charming but offers very little bite in the story department. The Hungarian cousin of a slacker-type dude comes to live in America. Forced by his aunt to take the girl into his scruffy abode, the dude is at first reluctant and pissy but slowly finds the girl warming her way into his heart. Expect sparse, uninspired dialogue and a leisurely, almost anesthetic pace.
