Product Description

Product Description

Senna is the true story of Brazilian motor-racing legend, Ayrton Senna, whom many believe was the greatest driver who ever lived. Spanning Senna’s titanic Formula One career, the film charts his physical and spiritual journey, both on track and off; his quest for perfection and his ultimate transformation from a supremely gifted novice, who exploded into F1 in 1984, to myth after the tragic events of Imola in 1994. Made with the full co-operation of the Senna family and Formula One Management, Senna is the first official documentary feature about his life, featuring astounding archive material, much of which is previously unseen.

Special Features:

  • Feature Commentary with Director and Filmmakers
  • The Greatest Victory Of All
  • Home Videos
  • "Lost" Radio interview with Gerald Donaldson
  • Brazil Trailer
  • Japan Trailer
  • International Trailer


You don’t have to be familiar with Formula One--or the tragic destiny of Ayrton Senna--to enjoy this visceral encounter with one of racing’s finest talents. Spanning a decade of Formula One from 1984, Senna picks through archive footage to show a world where traditional driving skills are under threat from the unsporting forces of big business and technical engineering. A gifted newcomer, Senna goes from anonymity at the back of a rain-soaked debut at Monaco to three-time world champion--earning him legendary status in Brazil and igniting the hopes of a struggling population along the way. Between races director Asif Kapadia (The Warrior, Far North) shows us an isolated figure: unskilled at the politics of Formula One and speaking to journalists about ‘pure driving' as a metaphor for life. On the track, his fierce will to win--fuelled by a bitter rivalry with team-mate Alain Prost--pushes him to the limits of racing brinkmanship, and the scenes of Senna dueling in the wet, weaving down the straight or accelerating towards the disappearing space of a corner rank among the greatest moments of any sports documentary. --Leo Batchelor

Quite possibly one of the greatest, most awe-inspiring film documentarys i have seen, certainly the best for a long time.
The way the movie is handled and researched, shot with dignity and respect but maintaining an engrossing tension, is immense and full credit to the makers. The footage of some of the actual racing is terrifying in an adrenaline fuelled way..Breath-taking stuff! The part where Senna over takes every other driver in the pouring rain at Monaco is something to behold, pure genius. It has footage from paticular positioned cameras i didnt even think existed back then.
The rivalry between Alain Prost and Ayrton was gripping stuff. Prost being the fighter, the competer against Senna's dignified, reserved but raw talent.
Ayrton Senna seemed like an emotional, sensitive human being and that is something, that publically at least, you rarely see in the world of sport. A humble, generous man fighting against a corrupt, money driven sport, that still rmains contrived to this day.
Music is added that really fits composed by a fellow brazillian.
It was frustration through all the corruption that killed Senna, well that and a steering wheel support piece going straight through the temple. A crying shame that makes you ponder lots of things like why they didnt postpone the race after Ratzenburger's death at qualifying. A must watch for all F1 fans but also for those people that want to see how to make a fantastic documentary about a dangerous sport.

Senna was touted as one of the movies of 2011 and one of the best sporting documentaries ever and it doesn't disappoint.

It tells the story of Brazilian Formula 1 legend Ayrton Senna's time in the sport. He arrived in Europe as an unknown go-karter but his talent was obvious and he soon joined Formula 1. He graduated from the small Toleman team to the more prestigious Lotus and finally to McLaren where he was a team mate of Alain Prost. They were the two best drivers at the time and their rivalry was so intense that they eventually stopped speaking to one another after many racing incidents between them.

The best parts of the movie are the brilliant race footage and the many interviews with Senna at various stages of his career. Senna was remarkably frank in describing his feelings about the internal politics of Formula 1. There is also great footage of pre-race drivers meetings. At these Senna wasn't slow in expressing his feelings at what he saw as the favouritism of the FIA authorities towards Prost.

All commentary and interviews are included as voice-over or sub-titles. There are no "talking heads".

Senna comes across as an unusual character for a Formula 1 driver. People such as McLaren boss Ron Dennis and chief F1 doctor Sid Watkins speak of what a great man he was, as well as being a great driver. There is plenty of footage of Senna's personal life, including his charitable work in Brazil and a fascinating clip from a Brazilian TV show where the blonde presenter unashamedly chats him up!

Unfortunately most people watching the movie will be aware of how tragically it ends. The fatal weekend at Imola is covered in depth from the death of Roland Ratzenberger in practice to on board footage of Senna's final lap during the race.

Format: Blu-ray
This outstanding bio-pic about the life of three-times Formula One World Champion Ayrton Senna is an exemplary textbook study in documentary film-making. Regardless of whether or not you have any interest in motor racing or in Senna himself, this film really is one of the finest-ever examples of the genre you're ever likely to see.

All F1 fans know that Senna (full name Ayrton Senna de Silva) died on 1st May 1994 following a fatal crash in the Italian Grand Prix at San Morino, the last driver (to date, August 2012) to die in a F1 racing accident. The film pieces together archive footage tracing early life and go-karting success, obsession with driving and winning and later days of international super-stardom of this most talented and fearless driver. His career-long rivalry with cool-as-ice French driver Alain Prost is revealed in a direct and no-holds barred narrative containing some astounding unguarded, off-the-record moments of interaction between these two individuals of contrasting (and clashing) temperaments.

Senna's unique driving talent and personal modesty, the enormous impact his success had on popular sentiment in Brazil, his heartfelt religious convictions and the work and money he dedicated to the education of under-privileged children in his native land are all revealed. On the way we are shown rare peeks into confrontations at F1 pre-race drivers' meetings, and some of the F1 engineering innovations which made their way into mass-production vehicles - like traction control for example.

Overall this is a gripping, well-paced film which holds the attention throughout with never a dull moment. The choice to forego a voiceover-narrator and allow the archive film to speak for itself makes the film's impact on the viewer all the more powerful.

Format: DVD
It's difficult to say what hasn't already been said about this film already by the countless reviews. What I will say was I've never seen a film have such an incredible effect on a cinema audience. Everyone in the auditorium remaned seated until the end and everyone left in silence or tears. This is no ordinary documentary but then Senna was no ordinary Grand Prix driver.

There have been more successful drivers than Senna - Prost, Schumacher and Fangio. There have also been drivers as talented as Senna who have died before they took their final chequered flag such as Clark and Giles Villeneuve. Yet somehow Mr Senna, even when alive, had an aura of something unique about himself. This film successfully manages to capture just how unique he was and also how fantastic the racing was in the time of Senna's career.

The film is comprised entirely of F1 footage, never-before-seen behind the scenes video-ing and also home movies from the Senna family. Narration comes from interviews with Senna whilst he was alive, commentators at the time and also his peers, rivals and friends. There are no talking heads in the film, the audio is overlaid onto the stunning on-screen footage.

The story Senna's arrival in the UK, debut season at Toleman, his switch to Lotus, his time at McLaren and his ill-fated move to Williams. The Senna vs Prost rivalry, arguably the greatest sporting rivalry of all time, is covered in great deatail - albiet purely from Mr Senna's angle. The iron grip of FIA boss Mr Balestre is also covered, showing just how absurd the governing body of the sport was at the time. I wish, as another reviewer has mentioned, more time was spent on his stint at Lotus as he had some utterly brilliant drives there too.
