"Lucens, summer 1937, lined up on the side of the road some spectators are waiting for the Tour de Suisse to pass by. The children back then still remember it. Their stories call to mind the country’s working class." The difficult Thirties, a country divided into wealthy and working classes. The female condition and the bicycle as the object of desire… Jacqueline Veuve uses personal histories to create the portrait of an epoch to produce one of her most personal and persuasive films.
