It’s a weird, quirky movie. Kinda cute too.
Slow moving film about oddball denizens of a desert rest stop. Jack Palance brings old school toughness. Theme song won academy award.
Sweet and enjoyable in the way it kind of winks at you with it's surrealism.
A story about finding your place in the most unexpected circumstances. Lovely, quirky and heartwarming.
Por el ritmo y los personajes, bien podría ser una película europea.

Charming, quirky, kinda slow-paced, but overall a fun little movie to watch. It’s interesting to see the characters and cafe transform.
