Nasu: Summer in Andalusia – Cycling meets japanese anime

I bumped into this trailer recently via Headset Press. This movie looks so awesome that I am willing to forgive its portrayal of us Spaniards as obsessed eaters of pickled eggplants. All the cycling related details are simply spectacular – you will even recognize some familiar faces from the pro peloton! I especially love the use of areal “shots” to follow the race (La Vuelta a España) through a very convincingly depicted Andalusian landscape. I was not surprise to discover that Kitaro Kosaka – the director – is a hard-core cycling fan himself.

I have been able to find the full movie online (thanks, YouTube!), but only with Spanish subtitles. I would be interested in finding it with English subtitles as well, so if anyone knows where, please, give a shout.
