Night Ride (Taxi, 2015)
Director: Kerstin Ahlrichs
Welcome to the underworld of Hamburg at night at the peak of the 1980s! Debates, sex, hard partying and a society in the verge of change take their turn as every rider hops into Alex’s taxi. She has run out of choices and, to make ends meet, takes the night shift as a taxi driver. The money is good and her passengers’ stories are even better! Eurochannel welcomes you to the trip of a lifetime with the premiere of Night Ride.
Night Ride follows the nocturnal adventures of Alex, a young adult struggling to find a secure monthly income in Hamburg during the mid-1980s. The sound is hard; pubs are dark and loud; people constantly argue about anything and everything; they smoke all the time . . . and not just cigarettes. In this convoluted and ever-changing environment, all Alex wants love and freedom.
In this ambitious production, viewers will discover outstanding actors and recognize major stars. The leading characters are portrayed by the multi-award-winning German actress Rosalie Thomass and Emmy Award winner Peter Dinklage, famous for his role as Tyrion Lannister in the cult epic series, Game of Thrones.
As the plot develops, Alex sleeps with some of her passengers for fun and pleasure. With Marc, superbly portrayed by Peter Dinklage, she finds more than that. The rest is a struggle with her passengers, the indifferent and the doomed, brutes, and other nuisances. This sort of life could go on and on, Alex could drive away from her own life, and in doing so, might lose her only chance for a true and honest relationship and a secure existence.
Eurochannel invites you to the trip of your lifetime with a one-of-a-kind taxi driver and her quirky passengers!
Hamburg in the mid-80s is full of meaningless chatter, loud music and strangers, but taxi driver Alex (Rosalie Thomass) is looking for love and freedom. She meets Marc (Peter Dinklage) while seeing Dietrich (Stipe Erceg), and there begins a tale of confusion punctuated by rowdy passengers, high ambitions, and Alex’s desire to run away from it all.
