The 1950's - the iconic Scuderia Ferrari battle to stay on top in one of the deadliest decades in motor racing history. Cars and drivers were pushed to their limits, and the competition for the world championship meant racing on a knife edge where one mistake could take a life. At the centre of it all was Enzo Ferrari, a towering figure in motor racing who was driven to win at any cost. Amidst the stiff competition within his Ferrari team, two of its British stars, Peter Collins and Mike Hawthorn, put friendship first and the championship second. Ferrari: Race to Immortality tells the story of the loves and losses, triumphs and tragedy of Ferrari's most celebrated drivers in an era where they lived la dolce vita during the week and it was win or die on any given Sunday.
While working for Ferrari at multiple car fairs, I started loving their cars and had a glimpse of what makes this company so special. The unique myth surrounding these objects of pure passion is hard to instill and therefore ideal for a Hollywood Blockbuster type documentry. Unfortunately, this one was a letdown. The title is deceiving. I suggest: "Mike Hawthorn and Peter Collins. Ferrari BFF. Watch People Die, While Others Talk." Other than some colorized footage and loud car noise, this movie has nothing more to offer. A Tifosi might say its a disgrace for Ferrari.
