Bagdad Cafe (Percy Adlon, 1988)

Presented by Bill Vincent

BAGDAD.jpg

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.
