Gridlock

Belgium, 2001 (MIFF 2002, Fiction)

Director: Dirk Beliën

When a commuter uses his new mobile phone to call home he starts a comic chain reaction with deadly results. Lavish production values combine with razor sharp story telling in a cautionary tale about the vagaries of modern communications.
