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
  • "Lost" Radio interview with Gerald Donaldson
  • Interviews (Option from menu to watch branched or non-branched versions of film w/eng forced narratives)
  • Home Videos
  • 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.

This is a great docufilm, it really touches on some of Sennas greatest and most controversial moments in Formula 1, from his stunning performance at Monaco in 1984, his epic 1st victory in the pouring rain of Estoril to those 3 monumental Japanese Grand Prix races in 1988, 1989 & 1990. It also gives you an idea on just what a massive sporting icon Ayrton Senna was all around the world.

For me however the best part of the film was the rare footage of the drivers meetings before races, I've never seen these before and that for me alone was worth the purchase of this DVD. It showed how Senna wore his heart on his sleeve at all times fighting for what he thought was right and just how badly he was treated by Jean Marie Balestre, the then president of the FIA.

Another feature on the main disc is that there is a complete commentary in English from the makers of this docufilm. Its certainly worth listening to their thoughts and views on Senna and how they went about making this film and using the best and most poignant footage that they possibly could.

Also included is a 2nd bonus DVD disc which contains interviews with F1 race commentators from the 1980's along with insight from Ron Dennis and Alain Prost. Some of the comments are absolutely spell binding and are certainly worth watching. You also get your usual cinema trailers from Japan and other places around the world.

Going back to the docufilm itself, the only negative point I could find is that in my opinion it could do with being about 45 minutes longer! Some of Sennas later battles were not really covered (eg Monaco in 1992 with Nigel Mansell or that race at Donnington in 1993 where he literally destroyed the whole field).

Format: DVD
Ayrton Senna was a sporting presence who was captivating to watch and became a sporting hero to many, even to those who only had a casual interest in Formula 1. This documentary attempts to portray the man behind the legend and give us a glimpse at what it was which made the name Senna as big as the sport itself.

Starting with his F1 debut season in 1984, talking heads provide the unanimous conclusion that Senna was such an intuitive driver that he was able to out-perform the car he was in - managing to achieve speeds and positions beyond what would normally be expected. During his first ever Monaco race in a Toleman which should have languished at the back of the pack, he amazed the viewers by carving through the field, catching race leader Prost and passing him as the race was stopped. The stoppage was a technicality which many felt unfairly robbed this savvy, young driver of a well deserved first win. Such an obvious talent was soon to be snatched up by a bigger team and after a year with Lotus, Senna found his battles with Prost continuing - but now as team partners in 1986 at McLaren.

After covering his entry into the sport this documentary focuses on the Prost/Senna rivalry. It is used as a pivotal device to tell the story of Senna and understandably so - it really was genuinely dramatic at times. 'Senna versus Prost' was good for TV ratings and although this is hardly an unbiased telling of events, Prost provides a lot of input and isn't made out to be the villain. The Prost / Senna battle wasn't always pretty, it saw the first time a team appealed against a decision made in favour of one of their own drivers (though it was against their other!).
