1. Aaltra

    Finnland 2004; 92 min.

    Zwei verfeindete Nachbarn geraten während einer Rauferei unter einen
    umkippenden Traktoranhänger der Marke AALTRA. Daraufhin an den Rollstuhl
    gefesselt, trampen beide nach Finnland, um den Hersteller des verhängnisvollen
    Gerätes zu verklagen. Ihr Weg in den Norden gerät zur lakonischen Revue
    abstruser Situationen. Anstatt sich ihrem Schicksal oder dem Mitleid der anderen zu ergeben, nutzen sie letzteres gnadenlos aus...

    „...herrlich durchgeknalltes Roll-Movie.“

    Zitty Berlin

    „In AALTRA entwickeln sich die beiden Neu-Rollstuhlfahrer zu rasenden Outlaws, deren anarchistische Aktionen zum Spiegel für eine Gesellschaft werden.“

    Tip Berlin

    „... es ist eine willkommene Abwechslung mit jeder Menge Spaß und einem
    erfrischend ironischen Blick... Nach so vielen “politisch-korrekten” Filmen ist es ein befreiendes Erlebnis, zwei Menschen im Rollstuhl zu sehen, die jeder Form von Mitleid nur so trotzen.”

    Variety

    “Aaltra ist eine köstlich bissige Komödie und das ultimative Rollstuhl-Roadmovie.”
