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.

If you're into the Tour de France culture, this is probably a pretty suitable movie for you. If you couldn't care less like me, there really isn't much left. The love plot in this movie is as standard as they get, and Ghislain Lambert is not the likable character the director thought he was portraying. In fact he's quite annoying. The movie is not slow, but it is in fact boring. There's a lot of stuff happening throughout, but none of it is interesting to me because I can't stand most of these characters. This movie has some qualities though. The cinematography is pretty good and the atmosphere of cycling is captured pretty well, as far as I can judge that. Apart from that, I don't care for it.
