ABOUT THE FILM

An insomniac cab driver works at night. This beautiful monochrome film depicts how his feelings are transformed by driving at night instead of during the day. Then, one night, a few words from a passenger, a beautiful woman, points him toward a new dawn.

Simple but lacking originality.. Bad acting although the girl was refreshing...

The camera moves were well coordinated but the young lady was a real highlight in this engaging little black and white.

共感を感じました。何ことも忙しいと言って考えすぎた自分がいたが、もう少し余裕をもちたいと思いました。

タクシー客のそれぞれに人生があり、ドライバーにも彼の人生がある。それらは直接関わり合うことは無いけれど、彼らは一時の空間を共有する。なかなか奥深いドラマだと思います。タイトルもいいですね。
