Aaltra Belgium 2004 | 90 min | OV | | FF 2004

rated for 0 + years
Ben and Gus (played by the film’s directors) live in the same village and hate each other. But they have one thing in common: they are both paralysed from the waist down after an accident with a farming machine. In their wheelchairs, they set off for Finland to make the manufacturers of the „Aaltra“ pay. This debut fi lm, shot in black and white, is a black comedy of a road movie, a politically-incorrect affi rmation of life and friendship.
