My daughter was very snooty about watching this film her brother had recommended; "I don't like cars and I'm not interested in racing." Well, you could have fooled me. We all sat riveted (and at times holding our breath) to the film - no interruptions, no comments (apart from the occasional 'Oh my God').

So even if you think you are not interested in cars or racing it is worth seeing.

(It bears no resemblance to Steve McQueen's original Les Mans movie, which sounded like a bit of an ego trip. Although new camera techniques were invented for the film, they had no story or script written before they started filming).
