This is a road movie on wheelchairs.
A rare combination of tragic drama and black humor, this highly politically incorrect film from Belgium is a real gem from start to finish. The story starts in a rural area south of Brussels, where two neighbours are very unhappy with their lives but most off all, the two men work on each others nerves. But then there is a sudden accident and the two men wake up in a hospital next to each other.... and end up on a journey in wheelchairs across Europe to their destination which is Finland.
Due to the almost universal belief in the goodness of disabled people, Gus and Ben are able to shamelessly take advantage of everyone they encounter. The fact is that the two men aren't in the least sympathetic- they are actually malevolent hostile bastards, pissed off at the world because of their situation.
This Thursday 18 July we screen Old Joy by Kelly Reichardt. There's also burgers from the barbecue to enjoy and Yo La Tengo feature as the soundtrack for this summer evening.
