Pizza House (2004)

Pizza House Cover

After a series of shocks (losing his job and turned down by his beloved), Raid O’Donnell becomes a complete maniac. He catches up with some freaky friends who are trying to build a business. New complications arise when they accidentally interfere with the local mob. The friends finally succeed in doing a home made pizza, delivered in less than 10 minutes. After a period of time, Raid’s mania turns into a severe depression, starts longing to his previous life, and finally decides to commit suicide. Although his friends’ attempts to rescue him fail, an accident gives him a new meaning for his existence.

The movie contains some drama, but it’s mostly comical. There are some action scenes like a car chase, some shooting, and great bicycle jumps.

Injuries: Toufic Iskandarani had some bruises from one of the bicycle jumps. Rany Belot caught cold after acting for several hours under the rain. He also got a minor injury when the camera crane’s counterweight (400Kg) broke onto his ladder; luckily I wasn’t up on the crane.
