Storyline

This is the story of five encounters, both tragic and funny, which all take place in one car in a driving school. Five couples who are brought together via their attempts to get their license, but divided by nationality and sometimes skin color. A woman who repeatedly fails her test is convinced she's finally found inner harmony through her Buddhist instructor. An Afghan exile confides his sorrows and worries to his female teacher. A driving instructor from the canton of Vaud makes racist jokes to a student who is Indian, but Helvetian by adoption, who tries to be more Swiss than the Swiss themselves... Written by Anonymous

29 November 2001 | by (Philadelphia) – See all my reviews

The filmmaker uses a funny and frightening experiences that people face in driving school. The issues explore in the film are loneliness, fear, change, racial discrimination and immigration while the teachers and students are interacting in driving instructing in Switzerland. When watching this film you wonder who out of the students will pass or not. This is an unique movie about people situations learn how to driving and each other. This is a perfect film for beginner drivers to learn road manners.
