The movie

In this hilarious film, a driving instructor reconnects with her supernatural powers and her tortured past to prevent a failed Rockstar from making a deal with the devil.

Rose, a charming and compassionate driving instructor, refuses to use her supernatural powers that allow her to speak with the dead. She makes an exception for Martin, an equally charming man who recently lost his wife and asks her to save his daughter. The teenage girl is the target of a satanic ritual ordered by a fallen rock star who has made a deal with the devil to regain their fame. To succeed, Rose will need to overcome the fear of her own powers…

Fallen stars, possessed trash cans and vengeful evil forces – could Extra Ordinarybe the craziest film in the International Competition? Madly in love with the world they created, the directors seem to be having a great time with their characters and their story, which all allow for tons of hilarious gags and situations. With its compelling performances and a formidable sense of pace, Extra Ordinaryshould have no trouble becoming your new cult movie.
