Hilarious and irreverent Belgian comics Benoît Delépine and Gustave Kervern wrote, direct, and star in this dark, edgy, and very funny comedy about two antagonistic farmers who, in the course of escalating their bitter rivalry, both end up paralyzed by a tractor. Teaming up, the irascible duo decides to exact revenge from the vehicle's manufacturer, and embark on a memorable oddball odyssey to Helsinki.
Dark comedy that's worth a view.
Filmed in a Tehran prison, a murderer is waiting for his sentence. In Iran, capital punishment is carried out according to Islamic law, which gives the family of the victim ownership of the offender's life. When the fam of the victim repeatedly fails to show up on the appointed day, Mansour's execution is postponed repeatedly which is a slow torture for him.
I didn't find the film that interesting or the charactor's very sympathetic. At least the film is relatively short, 85 min.
