Une jounée en taxi, is not a big budget film but a sincere film. A taxi driver and a convict on a 36 hours leave meet and share their loneliness. Gilles Renaud and French actor Jean Yanne are absolutely marvelous. They not only play their role , they are the character. The rest of the cast are very well known Quebec actors but they only make cameo appearance some even in a mute role. Some of the scenes remind us that a lot of people are prisoner in their own life. The only negative point would be the scene with the gun near a river. But that's only 2 minutes in the film so... I have seen this movie in a theatre and on video and each time it makes me think that the human race has a chance if people take the time to talk to each other. A Quebec film not very known but a little gem.
