Every year, thousands of Tour de France fans gather along strategic points of the race route in hopes of catching a glimpse of the competition. Some will go down in posterity, caught in glimpses of the congested crowd by cameras chasing the action; others will manage to seize snapshots of the cyclists in a long-awaited moment that's over far too soon. This time, two Belgian documentary filmmakers hand the mic over to these Tour "regulars" who, in some cases, arrive with trailer-in-tow a week before the event to secure the best possible position. In this behind-the-scenes look at the most prestigious cycling race in the world, HOLY TOUR reveals the human side to a mega-sports event riddled with tenderness and humor.Written by
A really lovely little documentary. Looks gorgeous, nice music and a touching portrait of some of the fans who camp out at the TDF. It's very light and relaxed but also has some serious personal moments. What they have achieved with this film is really quite special imo. Won't blow your mind but will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy inside, not an easy achievement for an old cynic like me. Would highly recommed to cycling fans but honestly there is little actual cycling so would really recommed to anyone
