Ride to top and down

French filmmaker Ghislan Lambert’s ‘Bicycle’ (Le vélo’) a determined journey of bike racer will be screened at 3 pm on Tuesday March 30 and at 6.30 pm on Wednesday march 31 at Alliance Française de Colombo at Barnes Place, Colombo 7.

Ghislain Lambert (Benoit Poelvoorde) is a amateur bicycle racer who lives on a small farm in Belgium with his brother, Claude (Jose Garcia), and a hired hand who cannot speak, Denis (Sacha Bourdo).
Lambert dreams of someday going pro, and a local coach, Focodel (Daniel Ceccaldi), agrees to help him train.

With Focodel’s help, Lambert is asked to join a team of pro cyclists and finds himself sharing a room on the road with Riccardo (Emmanuel Quatra), an outgoing Italian racer who urges him into a romance with cycling enthusiast Babette (Christelle Cornil) and introduces him to performance-enhancing drugs.

Lambert soon butts heads with Fabrice (Jean-Baptiste Iera), the team’s star rider, and while Lambert tries to show up the self-centered racer, his plan backfires when he’s kicked off the team for drug use.
