The Last Kilometer follows the story and an entire cycling season of “the old” Davide Rebellin, 41 years old and still fighting in the peloton after many victories and scandals, and “the young” Ignazio Moser, promising 20 years old son of cycling champion Francesco Moser.
The famous italian journalist Gianni Mura, Tour de France correspondent since 1967, helps us to discover what cycling was and what it has become today, after doping scandals, passion, epic, richness and decadence.
Finally, a bit of madness and insane joy is brought into the movie by Didi Senft, better known as “El Diablo”, a living and metaphorical symbol of all cycling fans, with their passion and their enthusiasm.
See below for an excerpt of the film showing the parallel story of Ignazio Moser’s 20 years old son racing the U23 Paris-Roubaix (incidentally, the race is cancelled this year):
I haven’t seen the film but it looks like it’s worth watching. I’ll let you know if I manage to track down a copy and it’s any good.
