Storyline

Tacho is Mirjam Landa's black comedy about a successful rally driver and his race of a lifetime. Alex (Daniel Landa) cannot imagine life without rally, devoting himself exclusively to it. After an accident during which his co-driver is seriously injured, and with the date of the most important race of the season inexorably approaching, Alex's manager is desperately searching for a replacement co-driver. Alex wants to race at all costs, despite the explicit ban on driving imposed by his doctor. He has been racing for fifteen years, but the greatest achievement has always escaped him by a hair's breadth.

Fascinating Czech film
7 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

The trailers don't begin to do this film justice - make the effort to see it and see if you don't agree. Fascinating character studies (and characters that English-speakers will identify with and completely understand), lots of action (the main character is a race car driver - not exactly a main interest of mine, but the action sequences were beautifully filmed and more than held my interest!) - and a fabulous, enigmatic ending -what's not to love? I love scripts that are intelligent and surprising - most films these days are so formula driven that you lose interest after the first few minutes - not so with this one! I'm very impressed with this film - and the filmmakers - I look forward to seeing more of their work!
