    Qu’est-ce que c’est “boarsuckle”? No google hits. Could you mean heroes, or is it mummy boys?
    I wonder what phrase you have to describe modern celebrity “heroes” and their staged antics.
    I think it’s a bit harsh to judge these people against 2011 standards. This was the ’60s after all.
    Certainly a great time capsule film. A reality documentary without the hype! No narrator necessary.


    1. Ah, no, it’s ‘bicycles’ said in my South Island accent 😉
      It IS a lovely film, isn’t it. If truth be told, I’m more likely to judge today’s competitors by 1960s standards…

    Something about an old tour de france movie, without subtitles so i don’t understand a word of it, actually makes french sound profound.
