Bagdad Cafe – 1987

I haven’t seen this wonderful little film in years. I just watched it again. Every moment was just as good as when I first saw it.

Bagdad Cafe (sometimes Bagdad Café, titled Out of Rosenheim in Germany) is a 1987 English-language German film directed by Percy Adlon. It is a comedy-drama set in a remote truck stop and motel in the Mojave Desert in the US state of California. Loosely based on Carson McCullers’ novella ‘The Ballad of the Sad Café’ (1951), the film centers on two women who have recently separated from their husbands, and the blossoming friendship that ensues. It runs 95 minutes in the U.S. and 108 minutes in the German version.
