Storyline

What if you were a Hollywood movie star with an obsession for cars and racing? You would probably read every script with even the tiniest link to the subject matter, in the hope that you could tell a great car story of the likes of "Grand Prix", "Le Mans" or "Mad Max". Then one day you happened to open your garage door and sitting there, right in front of you, was the film you had been searching for. This is what happened to Eric Bana and this time around, the co-star is his very own Ford GT Falcon Coupe- THE BEAST. Eric realized the story was in fact, about him, his first car, a lifetime of ownership and a lifetime of friendship. He set about documenting his own 25 year long love story. A simple tale of one man's ongoing relationship with his very first car. After years of precious restoration, Eric and his 3 closest friends, decided to enter the car into one of the most grueling and dangerous motor races that exists: The Targa Tasmania Rally. This would be a personal Everest for ... Written by Anonymous

Absolutely the best Doc/Story I have seen in years. "hands down", Bravo!
4 August 2009 | by fgoatboySee all my reviews

This is what a camera is for, it is for capturing a story of love, spirit, tension, Passion and all the beautiful things that make us unique as Humans.

I think everyone will get something positive from this film even if they are not lovers of cars, because it is about connection with yourself and your world.

It evokes all kinds of feelings and therein lies it's magic.

It reminds us that we are not alone in this world. That our close friends are important for life. That our silly love for the smallest material object is not silly,it is important, and a dear part of us.

I can't say enough My heart and spirit are uplifted.

The Imperfection is the Real Beauty we possess as Humans, the very thing that our new Digital World is robbing us of.

The Human Spirit

Eric Bana Peace to your soul man

You are living The Dream, and thanks for sharing it with us.
