If you liked Pulp Fiction...
3 January 2002 | by duke_manga_manSee all my reviews

Quentin Taratino must have seen this bit of European Noir. It is unknown in North America (thank God for TVOntario).

It follows a Finnish cab driver, with an Italian wife and and a Russian best friend, through a night in Berlin after he stumbles across a couple of corpses and a briefcase full of cash.

It is high paced and giddy, and it has a bit of Scorsese's After Hours in it, and it does seem to be a predecessor of 90s noir.
