a short fun film about the tour de France by Louis Malle later director of a revoir les enfants and other fine films. we see many parts of the tour some that I'm sure are not at all present in modern day versions of the event such as fans pushing bikers up the mountain stages. some incredible scenes such as a biker bleeding from the head being treated as he rides, and a biker so exhausted that he collapses as he rides. the editing is quick and jumpy and suits the nature of the race especially at the end. and at 19 minutes it flys by definitely worth a viewing. Available in the eclipse boxset the documentaries of Louis malle highly recommended purchase.
