Viva le Tour !

Fantastic documentary on the 1962 Tour de France. I can't understand one word of it, but one of the best cycling films I've ever seen.

Grab a snack, pull up a chair, watch all 19 minutes and see if you don't agree.


  1. Great short film by the director Louis Malle. You can get this (with subtitles) along with a couple of his other documentaries on a Criterion Collection DVD []. The one about life in the Citroen car factory included on this DVD is also worth watching.

  2. Awesome - thanks for the additional info. I'd like to check out the rest of his work.
