As part of an annual tour through the Alps, a handful of old cycling enthusiasts have just reached the end of their journey. While enjoying a well-deserved break on a beach in the south of France, they take a moment to look back on their exploits, both the small-scale and ambitious ones.

Our take

Pairing the awe-inspiring mountain roads of the Alps with the ruminative recollections of older, amateur bikers, this documentary from Guillaume Brac—himself a cycling enthusiast—not only marvels at the tenacity of the human body but also reflects on brotherhood and the melancholy of aging.
