The charismatic Giuseppe Marinoni has been making some of the most desirable bicycle frames in Canada for decades. A competitive cyclist in Italy in his youth, he decides, at age 75, to attempt a World Record for distance cycled in one hour for his age group. Giuseppe’s determination and perseverance lead him back to his native Italy for his training and, ultimately, his attempt at the record. This is a film not only for the spandex-and-helmet crowd but for anyone who believes that a man’s reach should exceed his grasp.

An honest, hard-working schoolteacher in a small Bulgarian town is driven to desperate measures to avoid financial ruin. This is an austere and well-composed film that builds dramatic tension through the main character’s shifting moral perspective. A disciplined performance by Margita Gosheva beautifully captures the specificity of time and place.

Preceded by the short film: Flash (Canada, 10 min)
