"In this irreverent road movie, comedians Benoit Delepine and Gustave Kervern, who wrote, directed, and co-star, show distinct flair for understated physical comedy and defiantly nonpolitically correct humor. Two rural neighbors who hate each other come to blows one day on a farm and get tangled up in an agricultural tractor, leaving them both paralyzed, wheel-chair-bound, and simmering with spite. Rather than feel sorry for themselves, the embittered paraplegics decide to roll across Europe to seek revenge against the tractor’s manufacturer."--Container.

looking forward to a comedy, I fell into this boring farce. much more about motocross than tractors, 2 men who remain adolescent use and abuse the kindness of strangers as they impossibly make their way from France to Finland. nothing subtle here. the old boys-will-be-boys routine, wheelchairs or not. the arrival at Aaltra was the only humorous scene in the whole movie.

This is a B&W film. I found the story to be very dark and the humour to be subtle and intelligent.

In this pitch black comedy the rivalry between two neighbors escalates into an all out war. True a maintenance error on a tractor they both end up, paralyzed, in a wheelchair. It seems they are doomed to stay together. They no longer focus their rage on each other but on the manufacturer of the tractor, in Helsinki. So get ready for a hilarious wheelchair road movie (Cult Films)
