Holy smokes even rally lovers need to see Ford V Ferarri (aka Le Mans '66)

Recommended Posts

Ok it's in the wrong subforum I know, but it's more of a word-of-mouth thing here and I don't go on the other sub-forums anyhow.

Rally-heads will love this picture as well as any other car enthusiasts or just any red blooded male. 5/5 acting, cinematography, humour, drama. Smart and a total love letter to the best racing industry people. Honestly do not miss it, unbelievable racing footage too.

*It's called 'Le Mans 66' in some territories

Sorry, not 'footage' but recreated racing scenes. It's a dramatisation of real events. But it's hair-on-balls-tingling good feature film racing nonetheless.

I'll leave this thread here for a short while before moving it to the right place 😉 

 

The GRID socials have been going on about the movie this past week, as cars are in the game 🙂

Saw it last night and the race scenes are very well done. The film is very much like "Rush": some liberties taken with the truth, but for the most part fairly accurate. 

Incidentally, if you haven't already read it, pick up the book "Go like Hell": its what the screenplay was based on.

I didn't know that and, now that I do, GRiD just moved up my "games to buy" list! 

(I assume the Circuit de la Sarthe is in game?)

...and it's actually not the Mk.II either :classic_cool: *ducks and runs away*

I can overlook that detail as long as it sounds right!

I loved the film as it battle for pride, honour and safety plus it a petrol-head dream to be the best. If you want to watch it, install the repelisplus 2020 online app.

And me too, I sympathize with you.
