Breaking Away Reviews
The character that struck me the most is the one who has an obsession with cycling and Italian culture. He is played by Dennis Christopher. In one scene he tries to out run a Cinzano big rig truck, another scene shows him riding his bike on a treadwheel in the rain while his father who is inside the shed looks on in puzzlement. "Breaking Away" has a lot of those funny moments but it also has smartness, heartwarming and heartbreaking scenes.
I missed the first part, but I'd recommend, anyways it was good enough for cineclub's weekly bicycle movie night! :-)
And maybe i like it because I can relate to parts!
