Pink Taxi

Uli Gaulke

Synopsis

In their Pink Taxis, Marina, Alla and Viktoria get their female passengers through the Moscow nights safely, always with a cheerfully indiscreet chat about career, cosmetics and men. These taxis are a microcosm of Russian society where varieties of lifestyles collide and are debated upon, laughed about or sometimes even cried for. Between commerce, financial straits and disappointment the three friends nurture their hopes for a piece of happiness.
