Documentary by Dutch filmmaker John Appel telling the story of 'Il Palio', the historic horse race that takes place twice a year in Siena, Italy. The film follows the dreams of the inhabitants of one of the town's districts as they prepare for the race, which, after all the passion and excitement of the build-up, lasts for only about 90 adrenaline-filled seconds.

the streets of Siena, where each horse represents a different
The nearly religious fervor the population puts into the preparations
for the race, and the intense emotions they put into the results are
fascinating, Among the highlights are the sections about a 92 year old
with the energy of a man 35 years younger, who still holds the race as
the center of his being, and the generally splendid photography.
Not a super deep or emotional experience, but a wonderful chance to get
a look inside a culture without almost any exposition, just images, and
the words of the people themselves.

Among the highlights is a 92 year old with the energy of a man 30 years younger, who still has the race as the center of his being, and the generally splendid photography. A wonderful chance to get a look inside a culture without almost any exposition, just images and words from the people themselves.
Another review here claims that some of the key people we see and hear are actors. None of the professional reviews that led me to watch the film echoed that claim, but if that’s the case it would diminish my respect for the film, so based on the faces and personalities we meet, considerably.
Interviews with longtime citizens have genuine honesty and interest, in particular the ones with 92-year-old Edigio. It was a quiet pleasure to see him so engaged in the world--pruning with vigor in his garden, cooking what looked like an excellent meal, greeted with respect by everyone, and of course, following the Palio as the lodestar of his very full life.
The cinematography is splendid, and does justice to a beautiful city and a fascinating tradition.
