Bagdad Cafe (1988)

1 out of 10 Brutal Cafe

3 out of 10 Nice.

A nice movie experience is to be had here with this low key, character based movie. Surely not for everyone as the other reviews show, this will be the type of drama that some will enjoy very much. Try it out if you feel like something a little different.

What's it about....
German writer-director Percy Adlon makes a "remarkable" (Boxoffice) American debut with his "charming" (Vogue) Bagdad Café starring CCH Pounder (Face/Off) and Jack Palance (City Slickers). Injecting his bold and unique style into a sweet story about the common threads that connect disparate people, Adlon succeeds in creating a cinematic jewel that is both "hilarious and touching" (Los Angeles Times).
