A slapdash tribute too humdrum to ever whip up a truly inspirational froth.
The film ... makes Marinoni sound generically obsessive and maddeningly inaccessible.
For all the access he grants, Mr. Marinoni is not very open. It's left to his fans to attest to his bikes' superior quality - and his cranky ways.
What's more boring than an inspirational sports story?
Montreal filmmaker Tony Girardin has a reluctant subject in 75-year-old master bicycle craftsman Giuseppe Marinoni, whose handmade bike frames are coveted by racers and serious riders alike.
Director Tony Girardin's Marinoni: The Fire in the Frame captures Marinoni in all his passionate, cantankerous, and eccentric complexity.
Another remarkable senior gets the spotlight in this wonderful, inspiriting doc about a legend of the cycling world.
This generally pleasurable doc is a little wonky in presenting that chronology, but you eventually piece together his story. And it certainly succeeds as a study in obsession.
If a documentary is only as good as its subject, then Marinoni: The Fire In The Frame is golden.
Tep, Girandin has himself a great subject. But as a film artisan, he's a lot less exacting than the bicycle-maker.
