Russian Movie

"Taxi Blues" is a Russian movie, Directed by Pavel Lungin.
It is a dark comedy, bitter heart warming, also about a strange friendship story.

Shlykov is a main character, manly hard-working cab driver- kind of an old fashioned man.
Lyosha is a trotter-type Jazz musician, I would say "new" type of a guy.

The story began the two opposite type people met at the taxi Shlykov drove.

Cinematography and scenes reflects 1990's Russia,
I could enjoyed simply two opposite type of people's really strange and funny story but also I couldn't help to think about what is the meaning of freedom and happiness for human's life.
