Taxi 4

Émilien's cool friend, taxi driver Daniel Morales, initially only agrees to babysit both their buddy-sons, as Émilien's wife Petra is away on top-secret mission. But soon the Belgian escapes, and while chasing him the mates stumble on a bank robbery and a drug king's palatial villa, where the grand finale reeks havoc.

Can we go now?

Our suspect is in the hotel,

but don't worry,

your client is in no danger.

My best man's on the job.

Gibert to Alain.

Suspect located.

Distance roughly... 15 meters.

- Get over here.

- I'm here, boss.

Concentrate, Alain!

See the wildcat at 11 o'clock?

It's a maritime expression.

In Marseille 10 years,

and still not seen the sea?

I have. When we patrol the port.

OK, I see.

so 11 o'clock's that way,

a bit to the left.

I get it.

Are you sure that's a suspect?

Looks like a chambermaid.

A terrorist doesn't go round yelling

with explosives

strapped to his waist.

That's right.

They wear disguise.

What better than a chambermaid

- pushing her cart along?

- Of course.

Especially in a hotel.

The song encourages him

to commit his dastardly act.

Sounds like Spanish.

A revolutionary anthem!

Watch out!

On my signal, neutralize the Basque!

Good job!

Betrayed by his own song!

To the cars!

I'll question him later.

What's happening?

Sir, I've just neutralized

the Hispanic terrorist

with a cart full of

what look like toxic products.

I'm sending them to the lab.

Perfect, Gibert!

Get the client out of his room

or he'll be late.

It's as good as done, sir.

Emilien? Coast's clear

to deliver the package.

Emilien! Answer me!

I'm almost outside his door, chief!

Honestly, jumping me on the job!

I can't help it.

You turn me on

when you're in action.

Reminds me of Sean Connery.

Don't take liberties,

just because you're stronger than me.

Next time, you can tie me down.

Quiet! The whole hotel's bugged.

Yes, Inspector!

I'll handle the package.

You find Gibert.

I love you, Emilien.

I love you, too, but not now!

Tonight, at home!

Mr. Cisse!

You're due on the pitch

in 20 minutes.

The charity is 9 For Africa. We're

building an orphanage. That's my goal.

Sorry, but I'm with the police.

I'm here to...

- What's your name?

- Emilien.

No, it's not for a...

It's for the...

This is no time to exchange cards.

OK, where's this Gerbil-jibly...

That'll twist foreign tongues.

The name's Djibril Cisse.

Don't get smart with me,

or you'll be straight in the pen.

Emilien, look.

Nothing like him.

The nose, teeth...

It's him, sir. I promise you.

Not too fast!

I smell a rat and I should know.

No illegals get past me.

I bust the Korean people

smugglers in '92.

- He's not Korean.

- Can you be sure?

I checked his ID.

- Look, slant eyes.

- He's just tired.

Let's go.

The Prefect will lose patience.

To the cars!

I don't know why,

but you're not popular here.

Don't worry,

he prefers fishing to football.

Mumbling again, Emilien?

I was just saying

you're a keen angler.

That's a real sport.

Do you fly fish?

I never do anything on the fly.

Quite right!

There's no room

for amateurism in fishing.

Take float fishing, for example,

for stillwater tench.

You can lie in wait for hours

like a vulture,

watching the float, then...

What is it now?

- Nothing broken?

- No, I'm fine.

Can't you ring your bell?

They said Mr. Cisse was asleep.

We didn't want to wake him.

He's in my car.

We're transferring him.

Djibril Cisse?

Transferred to Marseille?

Sh*t, it's Cisse!

Do something

or we'll miss the match.

Don't worry,

I know a guy who can help.

The police have taxis?

He's with the air force.

Marseille Express,

at your service.

Mr. Cisse has 8 minutes

to get to the game.

Good to have you aboard.

You're playing for Marseille?

A charity game.

We'll miss kick-off.

If it's for a good cause...

I'll get changed to save time.

You can try.

Guess who's transferred to Marseille.

This is the wrong way.

The city's gridlocked.

No kidding! Djibril Cisse himself!

Number 9 for Olympique de Marseille.

That's what I call a road.

Like velvet.

Can't even hear the engine.

At this speed, only wind.

News has just come in

that Marseille has broken the bank

to buy a wonder player,

none other than Djibril Cisse.

There's a taxi coming your way.

ETA less than one minute.

Got ya!

It must be Daniel.

It ain't gonna be the pope.

The Parisian?

Jeez, that's mean.

He has to learn sometime.

- Hey, Blondie!

- Yes, sir?

Can you check the radar over there?

Switch it to ultra-sensitive, will you?

Sir, yes, sir!

Watch out, bullet train approaching.

Stand back!

Thanks, kid.

We got a much better reading.

- It really goes.

- I customized it.

Picked up parts from Concorde.

Brake! We're nearly there.

We just received confirmation.

The transfer of the year!

There's traffic everywhere.

I know a shortcut.

I hate it when you say that.

The wildest rumors surround

the transfer of Djibril Cisse

to Olympique de Marseille.

To find out more, over to

Armand Pecci at the Velodrome.

Absolutely, we're here live in Marseille

for the fund-raiser for

a sick children's charity.

The player has asked

for an astronomical sum.

Figures of up to 200 million euros

have been mentioned.

He'll reveal all to us

later live on TF1,

but for now he's not even arrived.

Djibril Cisse or not,

we kick off in 2 minutes.

Take a right.

That's two "rights" already?

You sure you been here before?

Papal security.

We spent 6 days here

looking for Gibert.

That's reassuring.

How about we trust my instinct?

OK, let's go!

- 7' 32".

- Thanks.

Thank you.

This is better than on TV.

You're kind of in the way.

Back to the stands,

or it's a yellow card.
