Video: A Bike Ride

Recently I saw this movie at the São Paulo Short Film Festival. The director Bernard Attal, who spoke at the screening, won the audience’s hearts by joking, “It’s an American film, made by a Frenchman, who lives in Brazil.” Like the bicycle and jokes in French accents, this humanist film is universally like-able. It was a simple, memorable montage of images and conversations that made me want to ride my bike. Maybe you will too? Powerful, that power of suggestion.
