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.

# 47 : 1 month of vacation for the production, 100 minutes of boredom for the audience (web)
Well, this is a crap movie and another 2K stinker for Géraldine. In France, having a group of friends going in vacation is a sure one way street as it's been already told with a great popular success (see « Les Bronzés »). The first movie made the effort to do something new with the trekking and an unusual location (corsica) but here it's all about used clichés : french Riviera, saint Tropez, yachts, parties It's all the more awful that the orange cinematography destroys all the natural look. The idea of having the same characters a decade later could have been great but it's not played. The fun is not very good and the actors don't do much either : for example, Geraldine has nearly all her scenes with a mobile phone ! Benoit does the max to save a dying patient and he looks tired. In conclusion, if you are unlucky to not go in vacation, don't try to surrogate them with this movie, you will spoil your free time !
