Remi’s attention to detail is impressive, the false crowd includes a “mooner”, there are motor cycle out riders, a commisaire’s car, sirens wail and the crowd go into ecstasies as the rider/victim approaches. He is mobbed as he crosses the line, kisses fly in all directions, an interviewer fires questions and trophies are proffered.
It is a reasonably authentic atmosphere, though Remi’s enigmatic explanation at the start of the film is not helpful – “It’s by doing whatever that ones becomes whoever“. Err…Sorry Remi ?!
All together huge fun and all the cyclists, though bemused, take it well.
I loved it!
