"The Driver" is a specialist in a rare business: he drives getaway cars in robberies. His exceptional talent prevented him from being caught yet. After another successful flight from the police, a self-assured detective makes it his primary goal to catch the Driver. He promises remission of punishment to a gang if they help to convict him in a set-up robbery. The Driver seeks help from "The Player" (Isabelle) to mislead the detective. Written by

When the Detective engages the man with the bag in a shootout in the train restroom the character is wearing a brown corduroy suit. He falls out the window and the shot switches to an outside viewpoint. As he falls the man is clearly now wearing a blue velvet suit. When the shot changes to show him lying on the ground by the tracks the suit has changed back to the original brown one again. See more »
Today's your lucky day. I'm feeling generous. I'm gonna give you a choice. You and your boys can do one more job. A bank, a nice big one, for free. You're just going to hire a new driver, that's all. A good one.
I don't work with cops.
Oh, gosh. I wish you hadn't said that.

This is a thinking mans movie, which dare I say is why it seems to have a low rating! (at least far lower than I expected). If you watch this just for the car chases, then may I suggest you go and watch The Blues Brothers. The car chases in this film are simply the icing on the cake. Watch it for the characters, their lives, the atmosphere. All time classic.
