Is the movie in English, German, French, Italian or another language?

Well, It's obviously in some English City and I'd hazard a further guess and say London but Could be Newcastle , late 1960's,early 1970's and possibly supposed to depict some sort of gritty East end type location . So the name Michael Caine comes to mind in Get Carter.But i just happened to be watching Monty python and the Holy Grail , So the brain kicks in and it's a John Cleese Movie, a fish called Wanda.

I was about to say it is obviously Spartacus, but Mercmad appears to have nailed it:

a pity the cab doesn't have a plate on it because it can be traced for a tiny fee. How do I know it's a cab? the tarp pulled over it to keep the english sunshine out is a clue.. :laughing6: :laughing6:
