Boycycle (ft. Sébastien Tellier)

by Syd Briscoe

Salvatore Ganacci: “Boycycle (ft. Sébastien Tellier)” - 4 mins 02s

This surreal, sinewy promo for Salvatore Ganacci's 'Boycycle' just gets - as Alice in Wonderland once said - curiouser and curiouser as it goes along. Vedran Rupic’s film combines the story of a found family, a quest for belonging, and, er, fleshy motorcycle men all at once. Think centaurs with wheels and you won't be far off.

There's a pleasantly quirky sense of humour to proceedings, which ensures laughs without going overboard in playing up the promo's weirdness. Rather, Rupic and Ganacci's coming-of-age tale speaks for itself as the self-proclaimed 'Mancycle' goes on a quest to find his true, legless love. Entertainingly mad and impressively amusing.

Cinematographer: Lionel Cabrera
