    Has Anyone seen this film? It looks very interesting and has won some awards. I'm quite eager to see it from what i've seen on youtube etc.
    It looks to be a Canadian film.

    Life Cycles tells a spectacular story of the bike, from its creation to its eventual demise and is a celebration of the bicycle. The team spent 3 years, using Ultra HD cameras and experimental film techniques, to document the many stories surrounding the mountain bike and its culture.
    Explore deserts, rainforests, factories and cities on a visually stunning journey with thought provoking narration. Ride aling into breath taking eventual creation of trails. If you enjoy films like Planet Earth, Winged Migration, Baraka and Hero, then this film is something that is sure to be a cinematic experience you'll love. The professional athletes features in Life Cycles are some of the best in the world and are showcased like no other film has done before.

    Having just watched it, i would say its definitely worth watching especially if you love mountain biking or love cycling in general or even if you just love cinematography. This is a visually stunning movie. The movie is roughly 45 minutes long and i loved every minute of it. Don't expect to get the meaning of life from this because in the end it is just a bicycling movie.
    The bikers shown in the film are exceptionally good bike handlers and show you the real beauty of what mountain bikers can do. They really are just inspiring.
    If you have seen any of the Discovery Channel Planet Earth Documentaries, then you would know of the amazing footage that you will get to watch.

    Overall i would give it a 9 out of 10.
