Five short stories, each taking place in a taxi at the same time in a different city - Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Rome and Helsinki.
Five cities. Five taxicabs. A multitude of strangers in the night. Jim Jarmusch assembled an international cast of actors (including Gena Rowlands, Winona Ryder, Armin Mueller-Stahl, Beatrice Dalle, and Roberto Benigni) for this quintet of tales of urban displacement and existential angst, spanning time zones, continents, and languages. Jarmusch's lovingly askew view of humanity from the passenger seat makes for one of his most charming and beloved films.
