Great movie about overcoming of pain and making dreams come true
6 January 2010 | by gorian-1See all my reviews

As I am an injured cyclist myself this movie was a true revelation to me. It's too hard to pass such s black line of destiny that Mark did. In the beginning the only thing that he wanted is to be useful for his family. To help his ex-wife and to love his lovely daughter. And certainly the only thing that he lives with was cycling. In Marks childhood his father made a big mistake in drowning grief in wine, his only son was left alone in the world of misunderstanding and pain. Even good talents were deeply hidden under the mask of feelings and anger. The anger on his father. Marks is overcoming his tragedy with great help of his best friend and with love of a beautiful woman who see a light in him and made everything to release it. Great story, great playing. Sometimes dialogs are too continuous but it gives a fine atmosphere for the movie. If you are fond of cycling or living through the chain of losses in your life - Phantom pain is your choice.
