Jafar Panahi's Taxi Trailer

"Go faster and we'll make it, God willing." The first official trailer has debuted via TIFF for the outstanding film Taxi, or Jafar Panahi's Taxi, where Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi takes us for a ride throughout Tehran inside his taxi, picking up all kinds of fun passengers. This won the top prize at the Berlinale Film Festival, the Golden Bear, and that's where I saw it and loved it. It's a fun film and it has a heart aside from the themes it explores through Panahi's lens. This trailer is a quick intro to some of the people he picks up, and the light-hearted feel of the film. This is really one of the best discoveries of the year, so give it a look.

Here's the first festival trailer (+ poster) for Jafar Panahi's Taxi, from TIFF's YouTube:

Jafar Panahi's Taxi

Shooting almost entirely from within a cab circling the streets of Tehran, the great Iranian director Jafar Panahi (Offside, This Is Not a Film) offers a multilayered mosaic of life in today's Iran. The film first premiered at the Berlin Film Festival, where it won the Golden Bear top prize for Best Film, as well as the FIPRESCI Prize. It will be playing at a number of festivals this year, including the Toronto Film Festival next (which is where this trailer comes from). Kino Lorber is planning to release Jafar Panahi's outstanding Taxi in select US theaters starting October 2nd later this fall. For more info visit jafarpanahistaxi.com.

    Movies like this make you feel like, comparing to most American blockbusters, you're driving in some parallel, relaxed universe. It looks simple and even hollow, but, on the end, it gives you more than most of the 'great' movies nowadays ...
