Toni, taxi driver, lost everything in war. Karin, wife of a rich despot, incapacitated. John Milton, American, childhood friend of Karin, dead on the backseat of Toni’s taxi, murdered by Karin’s husband. And the passport of the dead, which Toni takes. A typically “hitchcockian” constellation in which this American coproduced thriller is set. Only many years later in the movies of Eddy Saller and Frits Fronz you’ll find so much nocturn genre-film-existentialism.
