Captivating mass-agitation docu-drama
6 July 2006 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

This docu drama shows the story of a 52 year-old man who lives on the borderline of poverty who can't find a job. He 'steals' taxis in order to earn some money and when the night finishes he gets the cab back to his owner. This is a loud-voice critic to the Spanish political system and how unemployment becomes an industry. How governments control their societies amongst unemployment, and how paradoxically a man can find himself forced to become a soft criminal because of the system. This movie thrills the viewer and pulses him to think deep about the topic it throws light on, but anyway, this is a sad real story.
