Driving Madeleine

2022 ( France ) ( Drama ) (French with English sub-titles)

Starring: Line Renaud, Dany Boon, Alice Isaaz

Director: Christian Carion

Taxi driver Charles is booked to drive 92 year old Madeleine on a seemingly simple taxi ride across Paris to her new retirement home. However, he is pre-occupied with many problems and a quick fare seems an easy distraction … but Madeleine wishes to make stops along the way and has many stories to tell. As the story unfolds, we discover that Madeleine’s life has been anything but ordinary!

This is a fascinating journey, complete with picture-postcard views of Parisian splendours.
