a film about friendship

At first you’ll be wondering why you’re watching this, because it lingers a lot. But if you give it enough time, you’ll fall in love with the characters and discover a movie about … friendship and more.

The characters create an offbeat, charming film with real emotional depth that avoids becoming overly cutesy.

"One of the great feel good comedies of the 80s. It's the story of an unlikely friendship between an embittered motel/cafe owner (CCH Pounder in her breakthrough role) & a stranded German tourist whose unexpected presence changes the lives of the cast of eccentric characters who populate the film, including burnt out hippie painter Jack Palance. This German indie was a mini phenomenon when it came out in 1987 & even birthed a short-lived CBS sitcom starring Whoopi Goldberg a couple years later. "
