Unhealthy, lonely, soulless comfort... welcome Eva to paradise! Being a foreigner or stranger is expressed as an immutable condition in this paradise called North America, where disinherited young people end up being "neither from here, nor from there". Willie, a card player in depression, who has been living for ten years and has adapted in his way to New York, takes in against his will his young cousin from Budapest, Eva. Stranger Than Paradise (1984), it is a spiral breakout, from New York's Lower East Side, through the harsh winter of Lake Erie to the decaying beaches of Florida. A major work of cinema of the 80s with contemporary composition, where Jim Jarmusch captures with ironic and laconic poetry, the unleashing of disillusionment and disconnection of these three uprooted young people. A monochromatic road movie that advances in the mist, discovering that in "The American dream" for Willie, Eva & Eddie there is nothing to discover.
