FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
Nominated for the 1986 Palme d'Or. Stuck together in a New Orleans prison, convicts Zack (Tom Waits) and Jack (John Lurie) are constantly at each other's throats. But then Roberto (Roberto Begnini), an Italian who speaks non-stop fractured English, joins them in their cell and becomes the object of their mutual disdain. Nevertheless, it is Roberto who brings the trio together long enough to organise a jailbreak. ★★★★★ "One of the great cult film of the Eighties" - Martin, Chilton, The Telegraph ★★★★★ "A milestone in American independent cinema" - Tom Huddleston, Timeout
