VIFF 2014: Marinoni haphazardly captures obsession

    1 of 2 2 of 2

      Marinoni (Canada)  

      Before establishing his reputation as a superlative bike builder, Giuseppe Marinoni was a champion racer by the time he emigrated from Italy to Canada in 1965. This somewhat haphazardly assembled doc is a little wonky on the chronology, but it certainly succeeds as a study in obsession, following the charmingly cranky 75-year-old Montrealer as he prepares to challenge a world record for riding endurance in his age category.
