71 minutes of heartfelt truth.
A film that changes your perception of victory.
A film that immerses you into its world from the very first seconds.
”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.
No caravans, no parties, no stars. Matelis perpetuates the other Giro – the one made of fatigue and sacrifice, of blood and clenched teeth. Wonderful.
At the end you almost want to cry — it’s the bravery that gets you.
Cycling is a world that Matelis knows thoroughly. For him it is much more than a sport or the subject of the film.
