Jonas Govaerts / Belgium / 2022 / 88 min
Noah really loves his girlfriend, his daughter and his car, but after accepting a seemingly simple driving job, he finds himself in a race that could result in him losing either his beloved car, his family or his life. Shot almost entirely from the inside of the car, this fast pace film banging with 90s trance and euro house is an over-the-top celebration of the lawlessness only genre cinema can afford. Be it wild chases, animal attacks, grenades, or straight on tripping, the viewer becomes the passenger in the backseat on this crazy ride through Antwerp.
