A film by Jim Jarmusch

Cast: Adam Driver, Golshifteh Farahani, Nellie

Jim Jarmusch’s Paterson is a quietly poetic film, and fun to watch.  Paterson (Adam Driver), bus driver and apparently a very happy unpublished poet, and Laura (Golshifteh Farahani), aspiring country singer, live modestly in the suburbs of Paterson, New Jersey, encouraging one another in their dreams but never pushing too hard.Oh boy what a beautiful life but wait there is more, Paterson’s repetitive job leaves him plenty of time  to compose poems while at work; Laura, who doesn’t work, is less focused but happy to experiment, well I say experiment yes she is like an artist who is obsessed with redecorating the house with some unusual designs. In the evenings, Paterson goes to a bar with a largely black clientele, presided over by Doc (Barry Shabaka Henley), a proud Patersonian who refuses to install a television.


Here is a life that is repetitive simple but not. It is a weird and unusual film about this couple’s life in a space of a week. Paterson is this quiet compose guy who drive the bus every day in and out. It is a very slow pacing film with the occasional excitement where Paterson meet some new people. You start to wonder as the film gets a little suspenseful  is going to be published. You a bit of history here about the city heritage and above all the work of modernist poet William Carlos Williams is paraded throughout the film. Here is a sexy film with an adorable couple who live their life in Paterson where they are together and nothing more. She on the other hand had dreams as well. The performance of the actors are charming, and their domestic life is twenty century.This film got a lot of attention at the Cannes Film Festival.   Here it is, this film is a nice charming comedy that you can take your girlfriend  or spouse  to.
