Goofs

The movie seems to be set sometime between 1885 and 1889. While a motorcycle powered by an internal combustion engine was invented in 1885, Mr. Luteau's machine seems to be a design from 1895 at the very earliest. See more »

Beautiful but frustratingly disappointing
30 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

I'm going to keep this short with a list of positives and negatives;

Positives: It looks beautiful, both the settings and the movements.

Negatives: Horrible story. Terribly written dialogues, characters and comedy. The action scene at the end makes no sense and comes out of nowhere. The moral of the story seems to say that it's OK to cheat and lie, for as long as you have passion everything will work out. Music that doesn't fit the scene, mood or time-frame. Horrendous voice acting, going for "star power" instead of talent.
