A night. Dozens of stories. A city. Lica, a taxi driver, is an all knowing guy, while Liviu, his friend, also a taxi driver keeps a lot to himself. They are completely different and their ideas about life and people only meet when they are eating and drinking at the bar. They are frustrated with their jobs. For Lica money is the most important thing, while Liviu thinks that a happy and fulfilling life represents more. They are trying to rediscover who they are and what they can do with their life, all while being on an on going adventure on the streets of Bucharest where they cross paths with all kinds of clients who end up having an impact on their lives, for better and also for worse.

So basically this is one of the best Romanian movie of the last few years. It markets itself as a comedy, but feels more like a drama. Grounded in reality, the movie tells some small stories of passengers and interactions of the bigger stories, the ones of the two drivers.

Mad props for the performance of Alexandru Ion as Lica, the classical taxi driver we all know, and also to Maria Popistasu for another great role. The writing was nice, the music didn’t stand out in particular, and the camera work was good. Also the sound is surprisingly flawless, shitty sound was usually an important part of any Romanian movie. All in all, a solid five popcorn for a pretty realistic movie about life.
