The Worlds Fastest Indian antworten
Kia Ora

I have recently seen the movie "The Worlds Fastest Indian". In the film Sir Anthony Hopkins plays New Zealander Burt Munro.

The movie tells the story of Burt going from Invercargill, New Zealand, to Bonneville, USA to try and set a land speed record on his modified 1920 Indian. The most incredible part is to find out that his 1967 speed record was set when he was turning 68 years old! Burt Munro's 1967 world record remains unbroken!

The movie shows his sweet talk, kiwi ingenuity and sometimes naivete. But it is a great story with the odd Triumph and BSA captured on film.

I hope the movie is shown in Europe, I'm sure you will enjoy it.

Hi Claire,

we haven't heard anything about the film on German TV so far (or haven't just I?).

But this doesn't mean anything so far!
Sir Anthony Hopkins is a well known actor in Germany.

It (normally) need's about 2 or 3 month till the films come into German cinemas. We don't have captions (texts below) in German! 99.9% of our films are dubed! So, they all speak German in the Films! Even Donald Duck!!!

I think at least, the film will be broadcasted on TV. "Che" (a motorbike film about the young Che Guevara (How do you write Guevara?) was not a big, but a success! And the film about the wale riding girl, too.
Hope it will come on German TV soon.

Hi Cadfael,

Take a look at it in one of those trailer websites - I checked it on http://www.Apple.com/trailers/ (you better have Quicktime).....

looks good. It was difficult to imagine Hopkins as a biker - but he's a great actor - I'm quite confident that he's got it right.

Hi Ulrich,

don't like quicktime.
And 33 MB for the smallest version is a lot even with DSL (= Hi Speed Modem).

But I watched it anyway! A nice trailer!

Hope they'll bring the film on German TV some time!
Some one should post it when it will be broadcasted!!!

Hi,

I saw this movie in France. Fortunate to be in a big town, because it was not shown in a lot of cinemas, and not for a very long time. It was great. A beautiful story. I keep a good remembrance of it.

Finally, was it shown in Germany?

Hi Claire,

For sure ! An example of perseverance by his belief in his dreams ! but with humanity and humbleness (according to his relationship with the other characters of the story).

Do you also ride sometimes on the beach with your Estrella ?

Hi

No I don't ride on the beach, I don't think the salt and sand would be very good for the bike. I live opposite the beach and so rust is a problem anywyay so maybe I should take the bike for a blast down the beach one day! Don't know what the neighbours would think!

The Burt Monroe movie was set in the late 1950's and 60's so I think the road rules were a bit loose in those days. Quite different now unfortunately.

There is no beach in South-Germany.

But many little streets in the Black Forrest. It is great.

New Zealand??? Do you have one from the Estrella-Patches? I was the organizator.
