Made in Germany: Bagdad Café
(Percy Adlon, 1987, West Germany, 95 min.)
Drawn to a pair of lights in the barren American desert sky, a mysterious German woman, Jasmin (Marianne Sagebrecht), stumbles upon a dilapidated motel/diner in the middle of nowhere. Her unusual appearance and demeanor are at first suspicious to Brenda (CCH Pounder), the exasperated owner who has difficulty making ends meet. But when an unlikely magic sparks between the two women, this lonely desert outpost is transformed into a thriving—and popular—oasis.
