Out of Rosenheim (Bagdad Café) is a look into the lives (and minds) of some people we all have encountered, but few of us ever get to know. This film (a ‘fish out odd water’-type tale) shows how one person can affect a disparate community. The Adlons express the view that change and “magic” comes from hard work and mutual understanding/acceptance. A well-crafted view of the lives of people everywhere and the difficulties we all can face. A whimsical story, lovingly shot by people who – unfamiliar with what others too often ignore give this arid area – the bleak, and arrid South West, an almost fairytale-like beauty.
