Night On Earth

Night on Earth focuses on five taxis drivers and their passengers, across the area of the globe in darkness. The stories vary in their quality and character, but all share the sense of place and camaraderie of the late hour. The trips seem far longer then most taxi rides, allowing the conversations to pause and continue at a genuine pace. The film is magnificent at capturing the deserted, tenuous world of cities at night. Accurately too, watching it with the window open I was confounded if the sounds were from Night on Earth or Cambridge.
