Storyline

The cosy and ever-welcoming Monkland Boulevard in Montreal. Malcolm's entire universe revolves around it, between the video store where he works and the Café Olé, a funky little coffee shop which has grown into his home away from home. He stands at the center of a small constellation of colourful characters, to whom he devotes most of his time: his neighbour Mrs. Baron, who likes to indulge in nostalgic memories of her past while listening to him play the piano; his friend Sal, a lonely widower who shares his passion for the movies; his sad and quiet neighbour Sharon, an abused woman who tries to cope with a jealous husband; and, last but not least, his brother Larry and sister-in-law Karen, who always try to fix him up with the ideal woman. After a series of hopeless dates, he runs into Alicia, a beautiful young Chilean woman who works at a bookstore across town. Before long, he understands that she is the one he has been waiting for his whole life. But Alicia's secret will knock ... Written by E. Sher

Good Acting on Old Beaten Tracks
10 November 2001 | by (Herzlya, Israel) – See all my reviews

The immigrants situation in the developed countries generated quite a lot of movies - the most popular being 'Green Card' with Gerard Depardieu. 'Cafe Ole' does not succeed to say anything new on this theme, but provides the opportunity for some very good character cinema and above the average acting. The script is the weak part of the whole business, nothing really happens before you guessing in advance what it will be - and actually nothing really happens at all. However the atmosphere is well caught, and with the credible acting of almost all parts I am not really sorry for having picked this movie for a quiet Friday evening TV watching.
