Love in Concrete

An obsessively romantic cabdriver picks up a wide cross section of humanity while making his rounds in Caracas, including a tough but sentimental transvestite prostitute and a wealthy doctor in flight from a soured marriage. These passengers continually cross paths, which amounts to a series of extraordinary coincidences in a city that size, but the creaky roundelay structure of this 2003 Venezuelan video is rescued by its charming cast and sweetly humanist intentions. The action keeps returning to the cabbie, whose own story finally takes over; after 20 years pining for a cabaret singer, he finally works up the nerve to court her, with pleasantly goofy results. Franco de Peña directed. In Spanish with subtitles. 102 min.
