Legendary Tour de France of 1948, the last Tour without television.
21 November 2005 | by salieri78See all my reviews

Beautiful documentary on the Tour de France of 1948, the last cycling tour without the presence of television camera's. Director Erik van Empel tries to reconstruct those legendary days. He interviews the few people that still remember how it was back in those days. He goes through news paper archives to find the few photo's on glass plates that are left. He digs up very rare footage to give an artistic as well as an accurate view of how the Tour of 1948 had its way. Sunshine, snow, mud, rain, paradise, hell and apocalypse. Lone cyclists right after the war, fighting on their own against the elements. 4907 kilometres through France. Featuring Bartoli, Bobic, and Bobet as the cycling legends of 1948. Wow, this documentary really makes you want to be part of those days!
