Paris taxi-driver Charles accepts an early morning fare. His client turns out to be 92-year-old Madeleine, who is making the final journey to the care home where her doctors and family have decided she must live. Along the way Madeleine asks Charles to visit places in Paris that hold memories for her. Gradually the two learn about each other’s lives…

“★ ★ ★ ★ The little gem of a movie set inside a Paris taxi.”

"… Driving Madeleine works perfectly with its double-mirrored narrative simplicity, carried by two actors who enjoy wonderful natural chemistry.”
