ABOUT THE FILM

The work revolves around a taxi driver who goes to all kinds of lengths to make a living such as trying to entice a man on diet into his taxi with a hamburger. Although the driver fails to find his reward no matter how much he works, the film is richly imbued with an atmosphere of humor. It would be difficult to find another clay animation film to match this.

かわいい! ムンバイ(旧ボンベイ)の町並みも素敵だ! 
インドでよく見かけるおんぼろタクシーの感じもよく出てる。
人も多種多様で素敵で、信号待ちでちょっと女装の毛深い人に絡まれるあたりは苦笑いしてしまう。
早く新車が買えたらいいですね。

nice characters, but a forgettable story, and poorly paced.

運転手さんの生活を深刻に描く作品ですね!ユーモアを感じながら、彼らの艱難辛苦も読みました。いい作品です!

Well done! This wonderful claymation work brought a throbbing metropolis to life. The angst of survival in a chaotic mass of humankind. Five...five...five and No Jive.

もっとも色んな人の出会いがあるであろう職業タクシー運転手さん。 とてもコミカルに描いている作品でした。 最後にしょぼんとした運転手さんに子供がミニカーを渡すところが感動的でした。
