More than just a hobby, a true passion for most men...cars, specially
old models. This feature presentation, one of the few bonus specials of
"Gran Torino" DVD reveals a little about this passion and the
commitment collectors and owners have about their classic cars just
Walt Kowalski had with his amazing 1972 car. The title is a little
misleading since it doesn't show anything factual or historical about
the Gran Torino, just some brief mentions. The focus of the short film
is to give voice to anonymous collectors talking about their relations
with their cars, what impels them to spend lots of money, care and
treasure their marvelous objects of desire.
Honestly, I didn't get much from this piece, I'm not so enthusiastic
about cars except admiring classic models or rarities we don't see
every day. It's informative, offers a different perspective about the
topic but that's it. Interesting to see the fair/parade with vintage
models, somewhere in U.S. and the attendees talking about what drove
them to their commitment to cars. Their enthusiasm made this little
film worth seeing and it's a nice suggestion.
Not sure how the "Gran Torino" DVD was presented around the world in
terms of bonus material - here, there's only two documentaries, one of
them is this one and skimming through the site I've seen there's a
longer documentary about the making of. Well, that's exactly what I
wanted. Something simple but gripping just like "Mystic River: From
Page to Screen" was, the usual cast and director interviews, which is
very compelling. 6/10
