Quotes

Elly: [explains what she would do if free to do anything] I would create a virtual world, filled with beauty and opportunity. And everyone and everything in that world would ultimately be one. But they just didn't know it.

Elly: So that through their own effort and striving, every element in that world could overcome the boundaries that divide them. And they could form this incredibly strong and vital bond, that could have never even been conceived of had the pain of it's opposite ...

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.
