Review
Two neighbours live opposite each other on a country road somewhere in Northern France. They hate each other and life for them is nothing but a daily painful confrontation. One day, in the course of a violent dispute, an agricultural trailer knocks them over and sends them both to hospital. Now paralysed from the waist down each decide to embark on a personal journey, but, seemingly unable to escape each other's destiny, they find themselves on the same platform, waiting for the same train, their ultimate destination Finland. Aaltra is a highly original odyssey, a pitch black and acutely observed comedy.
