  • Shlikov, a Moscow cabby scours the city in search of a passenger who stiffed him. He finally locates Liosha -- an alcoholic playing a saxophone on the street. He confiscates the sax but upon discovering the price of the instrument he starts feeling guilty and goes looking for Liosha. An unlikely, stormy friendship develops when the antisemitic taxi driver, regrading the Jewish Jazz musician as genius, takes him in and tries to sober him up.

    "...Sensational....There's a typical mournful Russian quality to TAXI BLUES: a soulful melancholia that recalls Dostoevsky or Gorky. But the movie also resonates with something alien and wild..."
