Down by Law



Directed by Jim Jarmusch - USA, 1986, 107 minutes

DJ Zack and pimp Jack end up in prison for being too laid-back to avoid being framed for crimes they didn't commit. They end up sharing a cell with eccentric Italian optimist Roberto, whose limited command of the English language is both entertaining and infuriating -but rather more useful to them is the fact that Roberto knows an escape route.

Original version English / Italian ; English subtitles
