»My Brother's Name is Robert and He is an Idiot«

by Philip Gröning

For the teenage twins Robert and Elena, a weekend can seem endless yet still fly by. Time almost stands still while discussing philosophy, lying in a blissful cornfield near a remote gas station. They are in their own little world, a twin world of twin games and twin love. A confined world where emotions rise, where pressure mounts into rage... The turmoil of adolescence. Nature, time, love, death.

Mystery Train by Jim Jarmusch

»Mystery Train«

by Jim Jarmusch

MYSTERY TRAIN is a temporal comedy that takes place within one twenty-four hour period in Memphis, Tennessee. The film is a kind of triptych including three separate but connecting stories, like those Japanese films made up of several ghost stories, or the Italian ones consisting of romantic comedies. But in Memphis, it's the Italian who is visited by a ghost, and the Japanese who are romantically inclined. And there's an Englishman there too, who causes everything to get pretty fucked up by the end. Although the characters never really meet, in MYSTERY TRAIN the episodic form is finally just a disguise, and the three stories just separate cars pulled by the same train - a minimalist's version of the Canterbury Tales.

Night on Earth by Jim Jarmusch

»Night on Earth«

by Jim Jarmusch

NIGHT ON EARTH is a sequence of five comedies which occur simultaneously, but which span different time zones, continents and languages. Each section focuses on the brief relationship which develops between a taxi driver and his/her passenger(s) as they drive through the night, sharing the space of a car interior, suspended between fixed destinations. The film begins in L.A. just as the sunset is being replaced by darkness, then moves into the night of New York, then Paris, then Rome, and finally Helsinki where, as the last sequence ends, the sun again rises, and the winter night fades back into daylight.
