Synopsis

Imagine a dishevelled, beat-up variation of Jason Bourne and you're somewhere close to this wildly original Hungarian action-thriller. The title refers to a comic book that two severely disabled boys, Zoli (Zoltán Fenyvesi) and Barba (Ádám Fekete), are working on. It features a grizzled, paraplegic former fire-fighter named Rupaszov (Szabolcs Thuróczy) who has a secret side-line working as a hitman for a Serbian gangster. As real life and fantasy blur, the two boys are drawn into Rupaszov's shady underworld, even helping him to orchestrate his increasingly audacious hits in scenes of escalating and blackly comic tension. But first-time feature director Attila Till isn't just to be applauded for his timing; Kills On Wheels is a film of refreshing diversity that deals with serious issues faced by disabled people every day – invisibility, prejudice, loneliness – in the form of a commercial thriller, driven by the infectious buddy-movie chemistry created by its three very unlikely heroes.
