Out of the bleu I get an email from John over at Alliance Française Auckland. Turns out there’s a movie on next week down in Takapuna sure to entertain a large slice of our bike-friendly readership.
With Le Tour starting this week and Bastille Day a week later, France is top-of-mind at the moment.

Cycling tragics like myself can’t wait for the monkey-blood-boys to commence their three weeks of toil, and on many stages I’m as captivated by the scenery as the pharmaceutical and athletic achievements.

If it’s got a cycling angle we’re always keen to promote such events (and simply love French cinema), so read-on for further details…


Family man François Nouel (Clovis Cornillac) is the number one fan of the Tour de France – an obsession that costs him his wife and his job. At a loose end, François meets a former sports manager, Rémi (Bouli Lanners) who encourages him to take the plunge and do the Tour himself.

With nothing to lose, François sets off, always one day ahead of the race, attracting fellow amateurs, media coverage and cheering crowds. As obstacle after obstacle is thrown his way, and his family comes back on the scene, François discovers what is really most important in his life.

Screens at the Berkeley, Takapuna, Monday 7th July at 6.30pm … one night only …

Subtitled in english for that authentic european atmosphere!
