Do you often approach strangers after a movie and ask them to get a coffee?
Yeah, that's uh, all the time. Usually I'm wearing a trench coat and I have nothing underneath.
Right, of course.
No, I'm uh - no I've never done this. Do you often accept invitations from strange men like that?
I guess I didn't realize you were strange.

I watch tons of films of all sorts and time after time I am left feeling like 'I've seen this before'. That being the case, I had no idea what to expect from Cafe. To my surprise, this little indie flick turned out to be unlike anything I've ever seen. On the one hand, it is a slice of life--seeing the whole world in a Cafe setting with great entangled characters--strangers, friends and family. On the other hand, we are plunged into story about the game of life, questions about the ultimate nature of reality, free will and self-sacrifice. This film is both fun to watch and thought provoking to say the least. It demands audience participation and as the days go by since I saw it, I find it staying with me--which is more than i can say for 90+% of films out there. This is a film that will age well and I think a lot people will find it a refreshing and rewarding experience.
