"Two of my most beloved joys: mountain biking and French films! Those of us who ride understand the amazing relativity of time, especially on the bike. Not only does the movie truly capture many of the very "in" concepts of the sport, but it also addresses the concept of how many of us are closing off our hearts by throwing ourselves so fully into an activity. Riding is great! Love is better."

"I saw this movie about a year ago, so I'm a little fuzzy on details. Anyway, it's about this young woman who loses her competitive edge in mountain biking and ends up retiring. Still, she can't give up biking and finds a new way to earn a living. The story is fun and uplifting, and the two main characters are both well portrayed. You don't have to be into mountain biking to appreciate this movie - there's plenty of looks into the biker sub-culture. In a way, you learn about it as the main character learns. Plenty of good laughs, too. Also, i love subtitled movies - some of the translations crack me up. Definitely worth checking out if you read through my whole review."
