The Last Kilometer – A Cycling Documentary

FROM THE FILM’S FOLKS: After one year’s intense work, after more than 10,000 km by car (and even some by bicycle!) following the Tour de France, the Giro d’Italia, the Paris-Roubaix and many other international cycling races, the movie is finally ready!

The Last Kilometer is a film totally dedicated to what is passion, emotion, sport: Cycling.

The movie follows the story and an entire cycling season of “the old” Davide Rebellin, 41 years old and still fighting in the peloton after many victories and scandals, and “the young” Ignazio Moser, promising 20 years old son of cycling champion Francesco Moser. The famous italian journalist Gianni Mura, Tour de France correspondent since 1967, helps us to discover what cycling was and what it has become today, after doping scandals, passion, epic, richness and decadence.

Finally, a bit of madness and insane joy is brought into the movie by Didi Senft, better known as “El Diablo”, a living and metaphorical symbol of all cycling fans, with their passion and their enthusiasm. The Last Kilometer is a portrait of cycling.

Characters
Ignazio Moser – The Young. Francesco Moser’s son. Young rider full of strength and dreams, above all the Paris-Roubaix, the legendary road race in northern France. His father, a constant reference and point of comparison for him, won Paris-Roubaix three years consecutively.

Davide Rebellin – The Old. 40 years old, last year he returned to victory against all odds. But after the scandal of Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, when he was forced to return his silver medal, for many
his name only represents the dark side of cycling, doping.

Gianni Mura – The “Suiveur”. A famous italian journalist who every year, since the late 60′s, writes his Tour de France chronicles. From Merckx to Simpson, from Pantani to Armstrong, he provides us the
keys of interpretation of this sport.

El Diablo – The Mad. “El Diablo” Didi Senft is a german fan you’ve surely seen running after the riders with his red devil costume and his trident. He gives voice to all fans and fan clubs willing to follow their idol everywhere, ready to shout for his victories and to soothe his defeat.

…and with: Francesco Moser, Cadel Evans, Françoise, Gedeone Rebellin,
Marco MIlesi.
