In Marseille, France, Daniel, (an aspiring race car driver) is a Vespa pizza-delivery boy who just quit his job to became a taxi driver – his dream job!   With his supercharged Peugeot 406 he gets caught by the police for a huge speed infraction, and is forced to help  a down-on-his-luck police inspector, on the trail of professional German bank robbers driving supercharged Mercedes. Trying to juggle a budding relationship with his beautiful girlfriend Lili and a need for high-speed chases, Daniel helps Émilien so that he does not lose his license and quite possibly his job. It’s a comedic ‘French Connection’ written by Luc Besson. Won a Cesar Award for Best Sound and Editing at Cesar Awards 1999 (France’s equivalent to the Oscars/Baftas). Starring Samy Naceri, Frederic Diefenthal & Marion Cotillard. 2000.
