A Sunday in Hell (PG)
1977, France, Dir. Jorgen Leth, 111 minutes
The first film in a series of iconic sports films we’re screening in the Buxton Working Men’s Club.
The documentary charts the highs and lows of the gruelling Paris – Roubaix cycle race in 1976. Hell is the cobblestone roads in Northern France. The big names of the time are there: Eddie Merckx, Roger de Vlaeminck and Freddy Maertens. Ultimately it is just the rider, his 1970’s bike and the awful road – a compelling spectacle.
