José R. could be any normal middle-aged taxi driver on the streets of Barcelona, except that the taxis he drives are stolen. Is he crazy, a criminal, or just a man driven to desperate measures by an unfeeling system? Based on a real-life story, El Taxista ful tackles serious questions, and has subtle political points to make,but is above all a hugely enjoyable ride.
