Kills on wheels, indeed
Impressive Hungarian film set in and around a rehabilitation centre where two physically disabled young men attempting to create a graphic novel are befriended by a confident and rather angry and aggressive guy in a wheelchair recently released from prison. His incapacity would seem to have come from his duties as a fireman as opposed to birth defect but nevertheless strikes up a relationship with the pair. All fine and set for some bitter sweet and sentimental tale but no this does not go down the expected route and the clue is in the English title. Extremely well directed, this difficult subject, naturalistically dealt with and injected with the extra ingredients of separated parents and talk of expensive life saving operation explodes in our faces with Serbian gangs, drug deals and extreme violence. Kills on wheels, indeed.
