The third feature by Jim Jarmusch, Down By Law is one of the great cult films of the Eighties and helped to establish the director's reputation as a leading independent of modern American cinema. Set to a masterful soundtrack, Tom Waits, John Lurie and Roberto Benigni brilliantly improvise their way through this cult classic which is "alternately downbeat, witty, bleak and optimistic."
Set in New Orleans, and beautifully photographed by Robby Müller, the film follows three characters, thrown together by chance in a shared prison cell, who make a break for freedom through the bayou.
