Pour un Maillot Jaune.

A cinematic tribute to the Tour by Oscar winning director Claude Lelouch.

This wonderful film of the 1965 Tour brings the hunt for the Yellow Jersey alive. Made three years after Louis Malle’s vintage “Vive Le Tour”, Lelouch’s film was made with the big screen in mind and is more cinematic in its scale than Malle’s. Without the restriction of narration, Lelouch lets the beautiful images of the Tour tell the story, which he sets against a brilliant and quite absorbing soundtrack.

There is no speech, no commentary and the quality could be better, however the three parts to this movie ‘For a Yellow jersey’ are an absolute must see.
