Film MARINONI: The Fire in the Frame 2015-05-28 19:00:00
Description

MARINONI: The Fire in the Frame

Director: Tony Girardin; Canada/Italy, 2014, 90 min

“FIVE STARS! A TRUE CROWD-PLEASER!” –POV

“FIVE STARS! TRULY CHARMING!” –Vancouver Courier

Top 10 Audience Favourite at Hot Docs Festival 2014!

Giuseppe Marinoni’s 75-year-old body is bent over a bicycle frame, teasing tubular steel with a welding torch. “Since you’ve been filming I’ve never welded so badly in 20 years. It’s stressful.”  Yet as Montreal filmmaker Tony Girardin shows in this quirky and uplifting character study of a cycling legend, Marinoni is blessed with a huge heart that has pumped the passion and poison of bike racing for four decades. A bike collector, Girardin found out all Marinonis come from the Montreal suburb of Lachenaie. The film follows their designer for a year in his adopted home of Montreal and in Italy, where Marinoni attempts to break the “hour record” for his age category. There are few people building steel frames by hand in an age of machine-pressed carbon fibre. Fewer still would try to break a cycling world record at 75. –Maclean’s

“INCREDIBLY ENTERTAINING!” –Pedal
