When light enters a thin film  (such as soap or oil on water) it reflects from the outer surface and the inner surface of the film. When light rays from the first and subsequent reflections interact, they may constructively or destructively interfere, amplifying or suppressing  the different wavelengths light, depending on the thickness of the film. This causes a variety of colors to be visible if viewed from the correct angle.
