Storyline

Hamburg, mid 80s, ALEX is a cabby. The sound is hard, pubs are dark and loud, people constantly argue about anything and everything, people smoke all the time, and not just cigarettes. Alex wants love and freedom and sleeps with DIETRICH. It's far from being love, but the sex is okay. With MARC, a little person full of dignity, she finds more than that. The rest is struggles with her passengers, the indifferent and the doomed, brutes as other nuisances. This sort of life could go on and on, Alex could drive away from her own life and in doing so lose Marc and not getting rid of Dietrich. Wouldn't there be a small monkey with the same invincible desire for freedom as hers.

Destination unknown

It's not about the goal, it's about journey. Or something like that, though if you're in a hurry you just want to arrive where you're heading. If you're one of those people this slow driven (pun intended) drama might not fit your viewing pleasures. It's decent overall with characters who "complete" each other, though in a very strange way.

There are hints of things that are interesting (prejudices or clichés depending on how you look on it), not all of them get explored properly though. Still the relationships work most of the time (no pun intended). There is a sense of dread that almost stops any lighter entertainment to break in, which might have helped the movie on some occasions. As it is, it's OK, but not great
