TAXI

Canada, 1982 (MIFF 1983)

Director: Barry Greenwald

Barry Greenwald, a former taxi driver himself, has produced a unique study of a world few of us are familiar with. Each of the drivers portrayed in the film has his own story, his own reasons for taking, up this job, but all of them enjoy the special kind of freedom it allows. Taxi explores reality as seen and heard from behind the steering wheel.
