Abstract: Coffee and Cigarettes (2003, USA) by Jim Jarmusch Main Cast: Robert Benigni; Bill Murray; Company: Asmik Ace Entertainment The movie consists of eleven short stories, each involving cigarettes and coffee. In every story coffee stands for solidarity and in each story they chinking coffee cups like one do with alcoholic drinks. Also smoking is despite some conversation about unhealthy smoking depicted very positively and in nearly every story a sign for solidarity. Scene: coffee male adults other tobacco solitary 0:01:39-0:01:55: coffee Here we can see Roberto smoking, while waiting for Steven. Roberto has several cups of coffee in front of him and drinks one cup with shaking hands. “The shakes” are normally associated with alcoholism, but here it shows the caffeine addiction. Although coffee is normally not considered as addictive, this clip will be very likely viewed as showing addiction. Still it can be that audience will consider Roberto as an alcoholic, who drinks coffee to subsidize the alcohol. Clip: 134
