4.5 out of 10 Beautiful Film

The light comes from Solo, a Senagelese cab driver, whose inner light shines throughout the film. He is hired to by an cranky older man to bring him to the Blowing Hole, a local landmark, at the end of the week. An unlikely relationship develops between the two men. 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.

This film did nothing for me. I found it slow & tedious and meaningless. Very overrated
