Bagdad Cafe 1987
Jasmin (Marianne Sagebrecht) is a middle aged Bavarian woman travelling across America by car with her husband, but they're not getting on too well - in fact, they have just had a major row. Jasmin is left in the middle of nowhere on a desert highway as her husband speeds off, leaving her nothing but her suitcase and her coffee maker, but when he relents and goes back to find her, she hides from him because she's had her fill of his aggressive, boorish ways. This does mean that she has nowhere to go, so she starts to walk until she reaches a diner and motel: The Bagdad Cafe.

Her maternal instinct, artistic sensibility, and penchant for magic win the hearts of the black owner of the cafe and her teenage children, an Indian short-order cook, and a former Hollywood set painter.

This is the first English-language film by Percy Adlon. Baghdad Cafe is an exotic celebration of the beauty of human personality and friendship.
