Aaltra * Gustave de Kervern & Benoît Delépine (2004)

Posted in arthouse, comedy on by .

Aaltra is a minimalistic, absurdistic black, Wallonian (the French-speaking part of Belgium) comedy that reminds of the cold, Scandinavian style of comedy. Two fighting neighbours end up in wheelchairs and a roadmovie unfolds in which the two sworn enemies are after the same goal. Try to imagine two hitchhiking men in wheelchairs who hate eachother and you get an idea. Of course the two run into absurdistic situations, told with almost no talking and with black humour. A very funny film indeed.
