60 Cycles

Canada, 1965 (MIFF 1966, Programme 6, 7)

Director: Jean-Claude Labrecque

The film powerfully captures the tense atmosphere, and gritty determination of the riders in an international cycle race. The flamboyant colour, the editing and the musical score all add to the tempo.

Gold Medal, Moscow Festival.
