Lana Roos is nervous: it's her 26th attempt to pass her driving test. The examiner is a friendly gent who tries to put her at ease. Soon enough though things starts to seriously meddle with her concentration: the man lights a cigar, which makes her cough; his wife keeps nagging him on his cell phone and two pestering brats on bicycles seem bent on double troubling the rules of engagement of big city traffic for her.

I saw "Het Rijexamen" a couple of months ago, as a short before "Red Eye". It was completely unexpected - but absolutely hilarious.
The story's about Lana, an elderly woman who wants to finally get her driver's license. She is very nervous, and unfortunately, her drive instructor is anything but comforting. He's a complaining, cursing, vulgar man, and he has problems in his love life. Lana becomes victim of this man's behavior.
The movie is highly original, and deserves a greater audience. These shorts are the kind of movies that give us hope for the Dutch cinema.
