Disc 1 features a couple of bona-fide documentaries plus a host of other features, the most interesting being the footage of his first three F1 tests - footage which as far as I am aware hasn't been seen to this extent before. It's fascinating hearing a young Senna stating that he seriously doubts he would take an offer from these teams, because the contracts they were offering weren't good enough!! Like someone offers you an F1 drive everyday...
The Honda NSX test is kinda nice to watch if you just can't get enough footage of the man, but it's of poor quality, the Foundation feature gives a good insight into the work the Foundation does (but you'll never watch it more than once) plus there's a very nice 50 picture gallery and the 19 minute "Music And Image Impression" thing, which despite the mystical images that conjures up in your brain, on viewing you'll allow yourself to retitle "Boring Williams Test Session With Appalling Music Overdubbed"
Now then, the two main features of Disc 1:
The Lifestyle Of Ayrton Senna In Brazil: It's interesting to see the man at rest but unfortunately you hardly see any footage of him actually "at work" to truly give this feature any context. It could be anyone with some money to throw around showing you his expensive toys. Don't get me wrong, it's still great seeing Senna at home - and there's tons of candid interview footage here - but it would have been nice if the rest of the set had more footage of him at the track, being less than calm and relaxed.
The main feature: The Right To Win.
This has had massive publicity recently, unfortunately the best footage has already been aired on myriad TV shows as a "sneak preview" of the DVD.Read more ›
The talking-heads in the first film, 'Right To win' - Senna's brother, sister and several of his partners, trainers and mechanics are Brazillian. I would've been very interested to hear what these people had to say - unfortunately, I don't speak Portugese and the directors have neither subtitled their words nor voiced over them.
Both disks have an 80's feel to them (this DVD was put together last year, although two of the films are several years old) and menu's and extras are quite poor, a lot of the narration is similarly OTT but the fact is that if you are Senna-mad, you'll find a lot of it fascinating, if not wholely original. It has a great deal of the man talking 'on' and 'off' camera, about his life, racing, emotions and why he always had that bit extra. There is not enough covering the infamous Imola weekend but you will still be happy to see so much of Senna and his peers - many of whom (regardless of conflict with him during his life) speak of Ayrton (rightly!!) in very hallowed terms.Read more ›
Given the fact this is the official Senna foundation tribute I was reasonably optimistic as his sister Vivian would have had some input into its contents, and I wasn't disappointed.
I thoroughly enjoyed all the footage, some emotion, some action, and lots of background info, this disc set has everything.
A tiny minus was the subtitles, they're either on or off, I found myself turning on when needed and then off when not, it would have been nice if they came on and off as required once selected, but it's not a major disappointment and doesn't spoil the enjoyment of the great footage and interviews on these discs. Recommended to all die hard Senna fans.
I will admit that while I was watching this that day in may 1994 came flooding back and so did my tears even twenty years on we all still miss this great and talented young man.
Now we need a twentieth one to go with this.
