Producer Luc Besson (NIKITA, LEON) and director Pirès rev up this comic action romp, complete with cops, robbers, and car crashes galore. A former pizza deliveryman becomes a taxi driver but would rather be racing. When he is enlisted to help the inept police in thwarting a gang of robbers, the streets of Marseilles are up for grabs. With a nod to THE ITALIAN JOB and other great car chase flicks, the film features stunt driving by actual French racing stars. TAXI is a high-octane hoot.
Directed by Gerard Pirès
