film analysis

The successful cycle of Cinergy Film Analyses continues. This time, an acclaimed film critic Neil Young will be analyzing the first feature film by Jim Jarmusch Permanent Vacation.

The film will be screened in English with Czech subtitles, the analysis will be held in English without translation. The whole event is going to last approximately 130 minutes (the film will be commented on during the screening – the screening will also be stopped in selected places to analyze some scenes in more detail).

In downtown Manhattan, a twenty-something boy whose Father is not around and whose Mother is institutionalized is a big Charlie Parker fan. He almost subconsciously searches for more meaning in his life and meets a few characters along the way.
