Jim Jarmusch - US, J 1989 - OmU
Written and directed by the ever-unpredictable Jim Jarmusch, MYSTERY TRAIN is comprised of three short anecdotes involving foreign tourists in Tennessee. Each story is set in a fleabag Memphis hotel which has been redressed as a "tribute" to Elvis Presley. Story one involves two Japanese tourists whose devotion to '50s American rock music blinds them to everything around them. Story two finds eternal victim Luisa (Nicoletta Braschi) sharing a room with stone-broke Dee Dee (Elisabeth Bracco) and having her problems solved by a spectral vision of the King. And story three offers the further misadventures of Dee Dee, her no-good boyfriend, and her dysfunctional family.
MYSTERY TRAIN was shown in Cannes Film Festival 1989 and won as the best artistic contribution.
