Driving through the Mojave Desert somewhere between Las Vegas and Disneyland, Jasmin (Marianne Sagebrecht) strikes out on her own following a row with her husband. Trudging down the highway, she catches the attention of Brenda (CCH Pounder), the irascible proprietor of the Bagdad Cafe. So begins a hilarious and touching account of these two women of different cultures, joined together in the middle of desolation in an oasis of friendship.
French cult film. Palance especiale
- Bagdad Cafe review by NC
My wife hates this film. Would sooner watch Paris Texas again than this. I love it. One of my ten films to take to desert island. Palance is just great. The simplicity of the desert and the characters is great. Marianne sails through the film with no apparent effort..........
