Night on Earth is a 1991 art comedy-drama film written and directed by Jim Jarmusch. It is a collection of five vignettes, taking place during the same night, concerning the temporary bond formed between taxi driver and passenger in five cities: Los AngelesNew YorkParisRome, and Helsinki. The action in the vignettes takes place at the same time, moving from Los Angeles in the United States to Helsinki, Finland. The scene in each city appears to occur later and later in the night due to the changing time zones. Jarmusch wrote the screenplay in about eight days, and the choice of certain cities was largely based on the actors with whom he wanted to work.[1] The soundtrack of the same name is by Tom Waits

The Film:  Night On Earth. 2 hours 8 min. 1991. In English, French, Italian and Finnish with English subtitles. Film by Jim Jarmusch. Music by Tom Waits & Kathleen Brennan- a real treat!          This is a must see film! Jarmusch blends "deadpan humor, off the wall shenanigans and excellent crafted images" in five tales of five taxi drivers and their riders during one night on earth in five cities:  Los Angeles, New York, Paris, Rome and Helsinki. Stars include an incredible international cast of actors-Gena Rowland, Winona Ryder, Armin Mueller-Stahl, Beatrice Dalle and Roberto Benigni.
