Storyline

A brother and sister, sitting in a coffee bar, bicker mildly about whose idea it was to come to Memphis and which kind of cigarette is fresher. Danny, their waiter, comes by offering refills; after determining they are twins, he guesses which is the evil one. Without a pause, he sits down and offers his theory about Elvis's twin. He drones on. The good twin finally speaks up, giving her own opinion. The waiter is unfazed. After his boss finally calls him back to work, the twins are free to resume their bickering amidst the coffee and cigarettes. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

The second 'Coffee and Cigarettes'
18 April 2005 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is the second short film from what director Jim Jarmusch started in 1986 and finished in 2003: 'Coffee and Cigarettes'. This one stars Joie Lee and Cinqué Lee sitting in a coffee-shop in Memphis, drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes, argue about nothing. Then a waiter appears to ask if they want more coffee. After he has spilled some he joins their table, asks if they are twins and tells them a theory about Elvis Presley and his twin brother.

I liked this short film in black and white. One the main reasons is Steve Buscemi who plays the waiter since I like him in everything I does. He knows how to bring a story in a way you just have to listen. I mean, the biggest nonsense passes his lips but you are intrigued anyway. There are a lot of smiles, most of them created by Buscemi, and I was not bored for a single second. The final moments seem to try too hard for a laugh though.
