A seemingly simple taxi ride across Paris evolves into a profound meditation on the realities of the driver, whose personal life is in shambles, and his fare, an elderly woman whose warmth belies her surprising past.

Driving Madeleine is highlighted by two wonderful performances: actor/director Dany Boon as a taxi driver having a bad day and legendary 92-year-old French chanteuse Line Renaud as a woman in need of a ride.

Written and directed by Christian Carion, best known in the States for his 2005 film, Joyeux Noel.


You might hear the title, Driving Madeleine and then the logline about a driver taxiing a 92 year old woman around Paris and instantly think ‘aha!’ It is a French Driving Miss Daisy! Well, the two films do have something in common. They are both irresistibly cast with exceptional veteran stars who both grab the heart and never let go. – Deadline


When you have a film like this that enables the two gifted actors who have chemistry to play off each other, it’s hard to beat. When it’s stripped down to the elements of acting, it can be just so powerful! – NPR
