BEHIND THE SCENES

Edita Pučinskaitė
Winner of Tour de France and Giro d'Italia

71 minutes of heartfelt truth.

Elijus Čivilis
MTB World Champion

A film that changes your perception of victory.

Stefan Laudyn
Warsaw Film Festival director

A film that immerses you into its world from the very first seconds.

Cinecitta News

”A different world”, as the title says, invites us to look into another planet, whose rules, hierarchies and sacrifices, despite the popularity of cycling, are known by few people.

Messaggero Veneto

No caravans, no parties, no stars. Matelis perpetuates the other Giro – the one made of fatigue and sacrifice, of blood and clenched teeth. Wonderful.

Paul Kimmage
Irish Independent

At the end you almost want to cry — it’s the bravery that gets you.

Corriere Della Sera

Cycling is a world that Matelis knows thoroughly. For him it is much more than a sport or the subject of the film.
