Le vélo de Ghislain Lambert (2001)

In the 70s, there was Merckx and there were the others. Ghislain Lambert was one of the others. This is his story, a quite simple one. The story of a modest Belgian bike racer. His greatest ambition in life? To become a champion. His greatest tragedy? Not having the legs his heart deserves.

Just marvelous
11 June 2003 | by (Cologne, Germany) – See all my reviews

A tragicomic master piece. Genre movies are sometimes unreachable for the the general viewer or rather boring for those who are fans. This movie belongs to those, which manage to feed both.

The acting is marvelous and the presentation is credible.

A must see for every genre fan and every one else.
