A funny and serious movie
5 July 2002 | by (Granada, Spain) – See all my reviews

Taxi para 3 (A cab for 3) is one of the best films I have had the opportunity to watch recently. It shows the "real" Chile through real life characters, The story is really entertaining, the characters are convincing and well defined, but its not a "feelgood movie". It's a deeper look into the humanity of the everyday struggle for survival of ordinary people who can be drawn into unplanned dramatic situations.

It got the Golden Shell at the Spanish San Sebastian film festival, sending the Spanish superproduction "Juana la Loca" to a humilliating second price - sometimes justice happens and a great, but low budget movie can still win over an expensive production promoted by a major distributor.
