Aaltra (Gustave Kervern, Benoit Delepine, Belgium)

A Belgian road movie about disability... I know what you're going to say, butAaltra is the most evil-minded fun anyone has had in the cinema with two wheelchairs and the open road. The two directors, Kervern and Delepine, play two avowed enemies who wind up paraplegic after an agricultural accident. They head off to Finland to complain to the company that made the offending machinery. En route, they manage to offend and/or exploit just about everyone foolish enough to give them the time of day. The film uses dazzling black-and-white photography to make the most of its outrageous sight gags, but much of the humour comes from the characters that the film encounters along the way - including some of the most forlorn karaoke singers ever filmed. --Jonathan Romney, http://enjoyment.independent.co.uk/film/features/story.jsp?story=573527 [Oct 2004]
