Time Trial

An existential crisis weaved into an audiovisual roadtrip with Scottish Tour de France champion David Millar.

On with the jersey! 'Time Trial' is to the sport of bicycling what 'Leviathan' was for the fishing film - in other words, the definition of a genre and a true bombardment of the senses! Shot with the most advanced moderne technology, the film follows the Scottish Tour de France hero David Millar during his last season in the saddle. The euphoria and the fatigue, the highs and the lows. With cameras mounted on the bike and in an expressive formal language it is almost as if it were ourselves who were struggling our way through the bumpy roads of France. But for 41-year old Millar it is also the last shot at a definitive triumph before age catches up with him. Finlay Pretsell's sensory and kinetic film about one man's determination is cinematic and existential in equal measures. An epic quest that is made for and must be experienced on the big screen.
