At Vue Cinema Hull: BUY TICKETS

A highly original, darkly comedic and infectious buddy-movie about a wheelchair-using gang of assassins.

KILLS ON WHEELS | Attila Till | 2017 | Hungary | Cert 15 | 103 mins | Hungarian with English language subtitles

Zoli and Barba are inseparable friends and outcasts. Both physically disabled, they live in a rehabilitation facility where life seems rather aimless. Zoli needs life-saving surgery but doesn’t want his absent father to pay out of guilt and pity. Enter Rupasov, a mysterious wheelchair-using man newly released from prison. He quickly adopts the two friends and offers them a chance to make some extra money by helping him in his work. That work, however, is murder. Rupasov is a hitman.

In this inventive, action-packed coming-of-age story of friendship, loyalty and revenge, Hungarian director Attila Till skilfully blends reality with fantasy as he offers a gentle probe into the lives of protagonists living on the edge of society and desirous of things which non-disabled people take for granted. Inspired to make his film from his own experiences as a volunteer for disabled people; Attila Till explains his motivation: “It was crucial to me to make a movie about disabled people where they finally aren’t played by actors but get the opportunity to act themselves and be the real heroes.”

Starring Szabolcs Thuróczy, Zoltán Fenyvesi, Ádám Fekete, Mónika Balsai, Lídia Danis, Dusán Vitanovics

Chicago International Film Festival 2016 – Won Roger Ebert Award, New Directors Competition

“Attila Till’s genre-mashing and certainly surprising KILLS ON WHEELS takes us through the looking glass into the world of assassins with disabilities. A highly entertaining dark comedy and action-thriller, the film is distinguished by the equanimity with which it treats its protagonists, who are rarely seen on the silver screen. This is a movie with cojones.” – Jury Statement, Roger Ebert Award – 2016 Chicago IFF

KILLS ON WHEELS is rated 15. Visit the BBFC website for full details (may include plot spoilers).
