SEE LENINGRAD AND BAGDAD IN ONE FUN-FILLED FLING ! Director Aki Kaurismaki's first international hit almost defies description. It chronicles the adventures of the worst Soviet rock'n'roll band as they travel across America in a beat-up Cadillac in search of work. This is complimented by Percy Adlon's quirky BAGDAD CAFÉ, Two odd-ball comedies and wish-fulfilling fables about the American-European cultural divide in one unforgettable double bill!
