Jim Jarmusch directs this freeform existentialist musing on life and art.

Along the way he is handed small pieces of paper contained in matchboxes, each one symbolising a mode of expression - music, film, art, sex, drugs - each of which he absorbs but does not outwardly react to. John Hurt, Tilda Swinton, Gael Garcia Bernal and Bill Murray are among the actors who appear in cameo roles

À vendre by Lætitia Masson( Visual )

14 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Porträt einer jungen, geheimnisvollen Frau, die jede engere Bindung an andere Menschen scheut. Sie scheint dabei einem inneren Befehl zu folgen, dem die Erfahrungen vieler Generationen zugrunde liegen. Ihre Fluchten beruhen auf einer scharf zugespitzten Interpretation des Verhältnisses zwischen Männern und Frauen: eine Abhängigkeit, die vor allem über Geld geregelt wird. Mit ihrem Verhalten entblättert sie die Geschlechterbeziehungen von jeder Camouflage und opfert sich dem Ritus, indem sie den Tauschwert ihres Körpers zum Prinzip ihres Lebens macht. Das Wort "Liebe" wird dabei ausgeklammert. Erst ein Privatdetektiv, der sich auf ihre Spur begibt und sich dabei seiner eigenen Einsamkeit bewußt wird, könnte ihre innere Gefangenschaft durchbrechen. (Lexikon des Internationalen Films)
