Have you seen it? Are you into French New Wave, have you ever read any pages from Les Cahiers du Cinéma?
I know that you like bikes, so if you answered yes to either of the last two questions, than I’d highly suggest giving Up and Down a watch!
Did the French New Wave invent Fixie?
Luc Moullet’s Up and Down is a story of many characters traversing the steep slopes of the Alps via bicycle. As cyclist you know what can go wrong when riding in the mountains, especially on the unpaved, narrow mountain passes of the early bicycle races. This film takes a comedic stance on portraying all the horrors which can be conjured in one’s head.
You can get it from Netflix…HERE!
p.s. I’m sorry if I’ve posted this before.
but whatever it is, it’s long and I know you’re not working for the weekend!
For the discerning gentleman who rides on and off the track.
