This is one of the most beautifully directed and acted film I've seen in a

3.5 out of 10 If you like good acting...
Donal from Cork, 09 Sep 2010
While perhaps not totally satisfying at the end, this film contains beautiful acting performances, especially seen in the character of Solo, the cheerful, kind, yet quietly troubled taxi driver. Some great humour and very genuine humanity.

Lauren from Cork, 06 Apr 2010
It starts out good, then it goes straight to bad. I definitely wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
