With its echoes of TITANE and Cronenberg this funky Brazilian sci-fi brings a wry humour to man’s relationship with the car. Born in the back of a taxi Uno has a special connection with cars. He can hear them ‘talk’ so knows their every secret wish. Though he adores his mechanic Uncle, he’s attracted to life on the land. But when his beloved old cars revolt against being banned from the city’s roads and the battle between cars and the planet escalates he has to decide which side he’s on.

“unexpectedly funny Brazilian horror comedy”


“boasts the pleasures of shlock while sacrificing none of its philosophical rigor.”    Slant Magazine


“this is a filmmaker with something to say, and has taken a highly creative path in terms of how she has chosen to say it.”
