Senna (2010) review - trailer

"Senna" is a documentary with the pace of a thriller, a tale of motors and machinery is more than convinced by the intensely human story that counts.

Brazilian Ayrton Senna was the little genius Formula One Racing, winner of three world championships before dying in an accident in 1994 at the age of 34, a former Formula One driver runners recently voted the greatest ever lived.

But if everyone could do was Senna's race, it would be a great story. Although he could drive like the devil, Senna was a deeply spiritual person who believes and a higher power. A mystical philosophy with the nerves of a jewel thief and the sensitivity of a poet, not to mention the killer looks good, Senna was a truly extraordinary individual. And. Deeply contradictory

On the one hand, Senna is a sensitive man, who wore his heart hinged on his race run, one of your own heart can not help out so that it tries to maintain a sense of decency and dignity in the cup throat area. But Senna was also the toughest competitor you can imagine a person who lived to win and never hesitated to push the car beyond their designed capacities. Triumphed in Formula One, he told an interviewer, is "something so strong, like a drug. Once you experience it, you search for it all the time."

More than anything, Senna was a pilot who would not play the game, a legal person in an immoral world, who hated politics and the injustices he felt he saw around him. There is nothing to "Senna," begins with the driver about his adolescence as a driver of karts. "It was pure driving, pure racing," he said, looking back with a kind of nostalgia. "There was no money, no politics, it was real racing."

Senna story so compelling is the fact that on several occasions, as the directors Michael Mann, Oliver Stone, Walter Salles and Antonio Banderas, looking features. However, "Senna" director Asif Kapadia, turned out to be someone who had never been in a race.

However, Kapadia (whose first item "The Warrior" won the British equivalent of an Oscar) brings the gifts necessary for the table. He has a keen sense of drama, a gift for narrative unity, and the kind of unerring eye, need to shoot 104 minutes of film from 5000 hours of archival footage from 10 countries (the assembly of the film took a year and a half).

Not just any movie either. Aided by writer Manish Pandey, a fan of Formula One, which was instrumental in obtaining the cooperation of the Senna family and all the protection as a hierarchy, and their editors Kapadia Gregers Sall and Chris King had access material that no one "was able to use before.

This includes intimate footage at home, the photos taken in Senna's car while driving and riveting sequences of drivers who are often stormy meetings before each race. Watching the endless interviews, the filmmakers also used the fact that Senna was more open and forthcoming when it comes to Brazilian television than had been previously known.

Kapadia made a series of interviews with contemporary "Seine", recording the driver's family, journalists and experts like ESPN's John Bisignano and the Brazilian Reginaldo Leme. He also made a brave decision not to show the people interviewed for their observations using a strictly voice-over. It proves a wise choice, so you can remain fully involved in the reality of life of Senna as he lived.

Senna hated the game play on the right track with his first major race in 1984 Monaco Grand Prix, where the Brazilian, described as a genius of the rain, the area from 13 to almost about to win the tournament, before a controversial maneuver that he gave to France, Alain Prost.

Prost, a four-time world champion, was an enemy of Senna, a driver whose calculation, the legal personality led to his nickname "The Professor". The fierce rivalry between the two is something to do, what track to meet 1989 and 1990 Japanese Grand Prix with a powerful symmetry.

Senna was a dramatic innate personality that every team who participated in the impression that the most intense possible. Until I see the following. Perhaps his most exciting race was the Brazilian Grand Prix 1991 Grand, an event that Senna, a national hero in his home country, was desperate to win. The emotions and the physical limitations of matter exceptionally difficult competition unlikely.

Speaking at Sundance, where the film won the audience award in the world literature, writer Pandey spoke about the presentation of the film to Ron Dennis, head of McLaren, Senna was driving after a man known to be numb and being so conscious not to waste time he has a car and driver waiting for him wherever he goes.

"After the film ended, Ron Dennis cried for 10 minutes," says Pandey. "Then he sat and talked about Senna for two hours" Such is the power of this man and this movie.
