Storyline

Depicts a global crisis that we all deep down know we need to talk about: climate, earth's resources, cities where the entire surface is consumed by the car. An ever-growing, dirty, noisy traffic chaos. The bike is a great tool for change, but the powerful interests who gain from the private car invest billions each year on lobbying and advertising to protect their business. In the film we meet activists and thinkers who are fighting for better cities, who refuse to stop riding despite the increasing number killed in traffic.

Natural Life vs. Business
7 October 2016 | by kekcaSee all my reviews

I do not hide my personal bias towards the subject. I travel by bike everywhere - to the university, to work, to the shop, I ride it for sport.

Like Super Size Me, Food Inc. and What the Bleep Do We Know, Bikes vs Cars is a movie that will make you reflect on your worldview. Exiting the conventional is required here. The themes of technology, ecology, progress and policy pops up in front of the viewer giving him a lot of new information and putting him before the choice of how to live his life.

Divided into several parallel developing parts the film takes us into the world of people who ride bicycles, lead an environmentally friendly way of life and fight for their right to freedom on the roads. What future we have to choose and do we have the opportunity to do it fighting automakers and construction companies.

How long are we going to live in this paradigm?
