After riding le Mont Ventoux myself, I couldn't wait to watch this movie as soon as possible. Set in the beautiful landscape of le Provence, you first experience what men like to do most: hanging out with each other, riding on their bikes and drinking alcohol. But behind this simple routine of decadence, there lies a great drama, hidden in time. Old relationships and hatred come together.
The movie overall is not the same as the book, but the slight differences didn't bother me at all. The casting is good, hence the characters are portrayed both young and old by different actors. The nice blend between good actors and the sensation of cycling on the mythical mountain kept me on my seat. Non-cyclists may or may not recognize all quotes and references used in this movie, like 'De Renner' by Tim Krabbé or the methods that are used to clean your bike. There is, however, a lot to enjoy for anyone.
