Ok. A 8 is saying a lot, but I loved this film mainly for the cycling cultural detail that was put into the it. Dino's character (Lorenzo-grumpy shop owner/mechanic), is asked by Laurie to build a wheel with straight pull spokes and he almost flips and would only do it 3 cross, I laughed out loud. And the tanline scene. All true.

Awesome.

Of course this might all be ? to non-bicycle addicts but would still be worth a rent. Maybe.

I'm always excited to see a film about bicycle racing and I like foreign films so i was intrigued by the idea of the film. It delivered the goods. It beautifully conveyed the love of bicycling through the perspective of 2 very different people without getting bogged down in the technical nature of bikes.
