While returning home after fixing the lights of a billboard, the worker Vincent Harris passes by a taxi with a damage door panel. When Vincent arrives home, he finds his wife murdered on the floor of the living room. He claims that the driver was wearing a red jacket and a ring with a large stone. Three years later, he lives in Brooklyn but is still chasing the killer of his wife. His dysfunctional neighbor Alice Parker has a crush on him, but Vincent is haunted by the ghosts of his past. When Alice meets the cab driver Roger Culkin out of the blue, she seduces him, damages his taxi and gives a red jacked and a ring to him. Then she forces him to meet Vincent, inventing a culprit to release Vincent from his past and stay with her. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

excellent !
11 October 2006 | by queridaprodSee all my reviews

a film, scenario and atypical director ! it will stay as a classic ! Manuel Pradal film an unknown New York and actors as Emmanuelle Béart is so different and natural as she have to be. Keitel is one of the New Yorker's indispensable actor that Manuel Pradal use as a "maestro"You can't miss this movie wrote by Pradal and Benaquista in the mood of Ginostra as a great scenario, a great story. there some Ferrara inspirations, and definitely Manuel Pradal is an author, not only a director, interested and inspired by stories, in love with actors and giving the right place to them and to the special locations... In this case New York is an actor as Keitel and Beart and will stay like in the Scorcese's Mean street and taxi driver...
