Driving Madeleine

Madeleine, 92 years old, calls a taxi to take her to the retirement home where she will be living. Charles, a disillusioned driver with a tender heart, agrees to drive by the places that affected Madeleine’s life. Through the streets of Paris, her extraordinary past is revealed. They don’t know it yet, but during this drive they will forge a friendship that will change their lives forever.

"Driving Madeleine is held together by the funny and dignified performances of its two leads."
Odie Henderson, Boston Globe
"The viewer might strap themselves in for some life lessons. Driving Madeleine does serve them up, sure, but the film, written and directed by Christian Carion, is a lot more than a sentimental journey."
Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com
