Description

This engaging dramedy puts a new spin on the term “differently abled” with a sensitive tale of two 20-somethings from a Budapest rehab center who become involved with a wheelchair-bound hit man. Although the English-language title is technically accurate, it doesn’t suggest the picture’s depth and nuance or the fact that it is really a coming-of-age story. Zoli relies on a wheelchair because of spinal problems while Barba has a mild case of cerebral palsy. When they work together on a high concept graphic novel about a paraplegic former fireman, life and art start to blur in intriguing ways as they interact with their protagonist.

Throughout the film, director-writer Till cleverly plays with the fact that people frequently underestimate those they perceive as handicapped. The film benefits from the casting of non-professional performers with actual physical disabilities. Hungary’s official submission to the 89th Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
