Format: DVD
To head off any comments about how I saw this before the DVD release- this film was premiered a few weeks ago in a small number of cinemas and I was lucky enough to see it in Belfast just after the Giro team presentation at a showing followed by a Q&A with James Erskine and Matt Rendell. Why was Matt Rendell there? Well, this documentary was inspired by his brilliant, balanced and detailed "The Death of Marco Pantani" although due to the nature of film making there were only certain elements that could be included.
As for the actual documentary- it brings together many of the important people in Pantani's life to develop an picture of a complex and passionate individual. We live in a world shaped by media that prefers simplified binary oppositions- people are either for us or against us, good or bad- however this documentary challenges that simplistic dichotomy- it is too easy to condemn pro cyclists from that era for all being "bad people who cheated using drugs" but this work places everything in context. While not condoning what went on during a dark period for cycling, it forces viewers to ask themselves honestly what choices they would have made in the same position.
There is also a tendency among many to promote Pantani to the sainthood, such are the myths and narratives that were built around him, but again Erskine avoids this- the film doesn't judge Pantani, it simply offers opportunities to understand a very complex man who struggled a lot internally. It is to Erskine's credit that he cut through a lot of the protective bubble people close to Pantani erected to preserve his legend, and it humanises him all the more.

Brilliant portrait of a young man who only ever strived to be the best and was naively exploited by the sometimes cruel business of cycling in which young men are apparently dispensable. The culture of doping is ugly and hopefully on the wain. A real insight into an interesting life

Amazing and well made documentary about the incredible Pantani but also views his fragile person! Don't miss it. Worth every penny.

This is an absolute must for any cycling fan. Forget the doping issues etcetc, just buy it and have a look at what they did to this guy and who he blames for the whole drug issues at the time!

The subject matter was very well presented, informative and followed through from the beginning to the sad end with as much content to guide you through the sport of cycling, even if you knew nothing about Pantani. The photography and overall visual impact was wonderful. A thoughtful and poignant film.

A very good DVD that gives you an interesting perspective into the world of cycling in the late 90's and early 2000's

well what can you say,such a shame that a great cyclist ended up like this,the epo years destroyed so many good cyclists,and im sure the ones who have kept quite feel very bad that they cheated,marco was the only rider who was as good as Armstrong did he have something to do with his downfall?did the mafia stop marco from winning the tour of Italy?was very interesting.
