Cert: 15 Year: 2004 Length: 92 mins Language: French/Finnish/English
Funniest film this year? What if I told you it was a Belgian road comedy with wheelchairs? In black and white? No, seriously. Aaltra is about two grumpy middle-aged men who lose the use of their legs in a bizarre agricultural accident then head to Helsinki to protest. This sublimely nutty black farce features a plethora of Tati-esque sight gags, Jason Flemyng as a bewildered English motocross rider, and a jaw-dropping karaoke performance by a Finnish biker. Essential viewing.
