Description: A cab driver down on his luck is lured into a life of crime in this dark comedy-drama. Ulises (Alejandro Trejo) is driving his taxi through a bad neighborhood when he has engine trouble and is confronted by Chavelo (Daniel Munoz) and Coto (Fernando Gomez-Rovira), a pair of small-time stickup men. Chavelo and Coto help Ulises get his cab running again, but it turns out they have an ulterior motive; they need a driver to ferry them around town for a night of thieving, and they give Ulises the option of helping them or being locked in the trunk. Ulises warily agrees to help them, and at the end of the night is surprised when the crooks give him a third of their take, which is more than he takes home in several weeks. By no means a wealthy man, Ulises can certainly use the extra money and becomes a regular partner in Chavelo and Coto's periodic raids, though he has a hard time explaining how he got the extra money. Before long, Chavelo and Coto have been found out by the police, and wind up hiding out at Ulises' home, where they begin displaying an interest in Ulises' teenage daughter (Denitze Lecaros) that her father hardly finds appropriate. A major box-office success in Chile, Taxi Para Tres also won the Golden Shell award for Best Feature Film at the 2001 San Sebastian Film Festival.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
