Poster for Tour de Force (2013)

A forlorn cyling nut embarks on his personal Tour de France, hoping to win his wife back in the process, in this French feel-good comedy. More

François (Clovis Cornillac) spends as much time as he can on his bike and dreams of being a professional. When his wife tells him she's leaving with his son in tow, he concocts a plan - with depressed former sports manager Rémi (Bouli Lanners) - to race the Tour de France alone, a day ahead of the pros. Solo at first, he is soon joined by others inspired by his act. As each stage passes, a media frenzy grows and the crowds grow bigger and a movement begins that doesn't please the real race officials.

Director Laurent Tuel’s latest is a gorgeously shot Gallic road movie, following bike-nut Francois (Clovis Cornillac), as he cycles his own Tour de France, in a kooky bid to win back his wife. It’s a light-comedy drama, short on big laughs and lacking in major drama, but entertainingly breezy in the way only French movies seem to get away with.

Despite some impressive racing sequences... a few too many flats.
