Hans, a self-confident man, on his way together with his family, causes a traffic fight with another driver: Ed – who, in revenge, starts to follow the family and confronts Hans with his ego. As Hans starts to lose control of his family, Ed pushes him until nothing but the fearful, vulnerable child he once was remains.

Trouw: “Bumperkleef deserves all the praise. The film is a well-aimed fantasy of revenge.”

NRC: “Extraordinary accomplished Dutch horror”

AD: “Bumperkleef is a well-accomplished film, one of the smartest films in years by a Dutch director. The combination of hilarity, traffic frustrations and tension works perfectly.”
