Smart Movie Making

Behind the crude and vulgar manner of a Roman taxi driver with a passion for young girls, lies a suffering humanity. It’s the loud cry of pain and at the same time the exorcism of a lonely man with a son at war.
Based on a short story by the Israeli writer Etgar Keret, the short film was entirely shot with an iPhone 4s.
