Storyline

A good-hearted musician struggles to find a way to tell his beautiful barista coworker that he loves her, despite the fact that she is in a relationship. Meanwhile, regulars and customers at the café where they work have their own problems and encounters. A police officer keeps his eye on his wayward cousin, who owes money to a charismatic dealer, and a married man contemplates his relationship with a good-looking new acquaintance. However, one customer believes he is in fact the main character in a computer simulation of modern life, set in the microcosm of the café, all designed by a young girl. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

While Elly is sitting at a table talking to Avatar, the lighted logo on Avatar's MacBook computer goes dim, however, his screen is still lit. On this computer the back light for the screen is what lights the Apple logo. The lighted logo goes on and off during the conversation even though his screen is never turned off when we see it.

Quotes

Movie Man: This morning I intended to just keep on driving right past where I was going and just keep going into the wild blue yonder, and I ended up at the movies, which is kinda like running away without risking anything.
Movie Woman: The wild blue yonder sounds like fun.
Movie Man: I'm still thinking of going. You want to go?

finally something different
3 November 2010 | by alc402See all my reviews

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.
