Movie Info

German tourist Jasmin Munchgstettner (Marianne Sägebrecht) argues with her husband after car trouble strands them along a dusty highway in the American Southwest. Fuming, she storms off and travels by foot to the nearest outpost of civilization -- the Bagdad Café. Upon arriving, she butts heads with the owner (CCH Pounder), but they soon forge an unlikely friendship. What begins as a few days' respite becomes a prolonged stay as Jasmine finds her niche within this eccentric truck-stop community.

    This enjoyable fable is expertly edited and knows how to use a surreal cinematography to enhance the sense of oddness created by its rather unusual story. But it also doesn't know how to end and simply drifts without any clear direction in the last fifteen minutes.

    Starts out like low budget community theater but that's probably part of its charm. <i>Bagdad Cafe</i> has substance and heart that reveals itself in a slow-burn of oddball characters and intelligent scripting.

    beautiful. mesmerising, joyful film-making, of the kind that you wish there was more. reality and dream mix - Percy Adlon knows the right doses. a happiness pill for easy riders and cool viewers. in my opinion, excellent. 5/5

    I think I found a favorite in this simple but yet charming movie. Wonderful scripted with great acting by both Sagebrecht and Pounder. Not to mention great performance by Jack Palance, himself in a story of two women with two different backgrounds, but same situation of leaving their husbands behind. The outcome is suprising and will leave you happy with the ending. Great movie and now one of my top favorites!!! Also, love the song "Calling You" which is the theme song to the movie. Charming and wonderful. I give it two thumbs up! ;)
