Eclipse 1974: Vive le Tour!

Oh, this is a documentary about that bicycle thing?

Louis Malle, Louis Malle… It’s such a familiar name, but I can’t quite remember… he’s done a bunch of movies I’ve seen, right?

Aaah! My Dinner with Andre. Of course.

But I think that’s basically the only movie of his I’ve seen?

Oh, and Au revoir les enfants, which has a weirdo name up there.

This is mostly about bikers hydrating, peeing and getting into accidents. It’s like a… Tragedy of the Bikers.

I’m guessing Malle wasn’t really into sports?

It looks great, though.

And it’s funny.

Vive le Tour!. Louis Malle. 1962.
