Dour, Deadpan and Uproariously Hilarious ! Two men embark on a crazy road trip, their mode of conveyance being..well..wheelchairs ! One of the most zany road movies ever ! A fitting tribute to the works of Aki Kaurismaki, (who makes a pretty wicked cameo) n Jacques Tati ! Treading similar paths as Tati's 'Trafic' (the film's name is an overt reference to 'Trafic') ,this film, to some extent, ponders on the absurdity of vehicles,a culture obsessed with vehicles, on the concept of motion itself and communication ! The best thing about dis film is d fact that it's never too sentimental about its two wheelchair bound characters; in fact it does its best to make us loathe them and treat them as two normal human beings who are annoying, ungrateful, spiteful and absolute scoundrels ! n yes..d grainy B n W cinematography is quite gorgeous indeed !
Hilarious! Had almost nearly as many laughs the second viewing as I did the first. Loves me a good ol' dark and dead pan comedy. Some of the gags in this stuck with me for days!
