Passengers in life
27 August 2004 | by jebrookeSee all my reviews

This is a modestly paced film which suits the character of its main protagonist, Alejandro, the service driver, (sort of, but not quite, a taxi driver, apparently). It sits in the comedy genre but the comedy is of a gentle and knowing kind.

It will not suit those who prefer their movies to be long on narrative and short on insight but if you're interested in the adventures of a pretty normal guy and his attachment to his Renault 12 then there is much of value.

Anyone who has ever dabbled in amateur rock should check it out just for the gags surrounding 'Piranha' and his CD.
