ROADKILL

Director: Mohammad Farokhmanesh – Comedy, short movie, 20 min, Germany 2001

Alfred (Florian Knoblich) is a dropout and now finds himself sitting in the middle of nowhere on a discarded sofa, but all he wishes for is to have his peace and quiet. But fate doesn’t mean well for him as the talkative Rupert (Hans-Jürgen Schatz) visits him out of the blue and turns out to be the biggest pain in the ass of all time and grand master of repression. In an effort to do a good deed every day, just like he learned from his father, Rupert and his closed mind create not only for himself, but also for his wife (Mirja Schmidt) and Alfred an alomost nightmare… A bitterly wicked tragicomedy with surrealistic undertones.
