Korean Cinema NOW | A Taxi Driver 택시운전사

137 min, NR

Taxi Driver Taxi Driver
Kim Sa-bok (Song Kang-ho) is an impatient taxi driver and the clueless father of a 11-year-old girl, Eun-sung (Yoo Eun-mi).
Four months behind in paying his rent, he unwillingly accepts to take the German journalist Jürgen Hinzpeter (Thomas Kretschmann) all the way from Seoul to Gwangju, besieged by the military so that he could capture the student rebellion and the brutal repression ordered by Chun Doo-hwan.

Director Jang Hoon (The Front Line, 2011) masterfully narrates the personal journey of the taxi driver from a selfish man to a politically awakened citizen.
