JimJarmusch's most fully developed film to date comprises five funny and poignant tales woven around fleeting encounters between taxi-driver and passenger(s) over one night in Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Rome and Helsinki. Particularly memorable is the Italian section, featuring Robert Benigni's raving confession of a carnal past to a priest that is both hysterical and outrageous.
