The Limits of Control is the new movie
from filmmaker Jim Jarmusch (Broken Flowers, Down by Law).
The film is set in the striking and varied landscapes of
contemporary Spain (both urban and otherwise). The location
shoot there united the writer/director with acclaimed
cinematographer Christopher Doyle (In the Mood for Love,
Paranoid Park ).
Isaach De Bankolé stars in the lead role for Mr. Jarmusch;
this marks the duo’s fourth collaboration over nearly two
decades, following Night on Earth, Ghost Dog: The Way of the
Samurai, and Coffee and Cigarettes. The Limits of Control
also features several other actors with whom Mr. Jarmusch
has previously worked, including Alex Descas, John Hurt,
Youki Kudoh, Bill Murray, and Tilda Swinton; and actors new
to his films, including Hiam Abbass, Gael García Bernal, Paz
De La Huerta, Jean-François Stévenin, and Luis Tosar.
The Limits of Control is the story of a mysterious loner
(played by Mr. De Bankolé), a stranger, whose activities
remain meticulously outside the law. He is in the process of
completing a job, yet he trusts no one, and his objectives
are not initially divulged.
His journey, paradoxically both intently focused and
dreamlike, takes him not only across Spain but also through
his own consciousness.
