Watched this movie last night, as part of the Vancouver Latin American Film Festival. A beautiful story about aging, family and a cycling trip across North America that changed the course of two brothers’ lives. It will replay tomorrow as the audience favourite.

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 […]
