A man with seemingly unwavering ethics is challenged by his new boss, who believes everyone has a price and it willing to prove it. In this Capra-esque tale no one leaves unscathed when principles and pragmatism collide.
"Taxi, an encounter" marks debut of Gabriela David in the direction, and this is very favorable for the national cinematography by two things. First, she is a woman and the women are filming every day in Argentina at the same level of risk that the men, as much in production as in content. Secondly because David has talent. The film is not pretensiosa, remains in single a subject, the solitude, and the protagonist is a solitaire that handles a robbed taxi by the nights of Buenos Aires. The plot is not the most important subject, but trasfondo of urban desolation is it; and David portrays it wonderfully. You must not wait for a jewel, but it is not going to disappoint if you wait for a good film. In addition it counts on the solid performance of Diego Peretti, who consolidates like one of the most promissory actors than they exceed the 30 and they do not have gained fame. The rest of the extreme distribution to mediocre with good performances. The camera registers the night of Buenos Aires with an austere registry, without great conflicts but that the daily one of a "tachero", passing by humble districts, wild char them without passing by the ticket office of the psychologist, a roundtrip by the mind of " an unemployed " young person of the criminal heading that suffers daily, and that Gabriela David films it wonderfully. I liked the film and I recommend it for one Sunday to afternoon, when the sun falls and the spirit does not need nor a false comedy that raises the spirit to us nor of a melodrama that ruins to us just a short time the more but of rest that we have left. Sorry for my pour English. Germán Kijel
