In the 70s, there was Merckx and there were the others. Ghislain Lambert was one of the others. This is his story, a quite simple one. The story of a modest Belgian bike racer. His greatest ambition in life? To become a champion. His greatest tragedy? Not having the legs his heart deserves.

I wonder why Michel Duchaussoy who used to work with such directors as Claude Chabrol and Alain Jessua has agreed to take part in this vulgar comedy.The real funny moments are few and far between ,and however ,the subject (the salesmen trying to send their lousy books to naive people) was ideal -one can only dream of what a Billy Wilder could have done with it.And the excerpts from "bridge on the river Kwai" do not bring anything at all except that David Lean was great. Nothing is here.
