In 1972 Roger Donaldson made a documentary about Burt Munro, an eccentric, talented motorcycle enthusiast from Invercargill, who had a dream of breaking the world's speed record at Bonneville Salt Flats. He wanted to accomplished that dream on his 1920 Indian Scout that he rebuilt and modified himself. Since 1972, Donaldson has wanted to make a feature film that brought out the belief, vision and determination of the man who would not let anything, even illness, stop him. This "feel good" film just might be the best that Donaldson has done, to date; probably because Munro's good natured spirit meant so very much to him. It is sad that it is not getting the theatrical distribution it deserves. So if you have not seen it, get the disc and experience what it means to view a really great movie. Highly Recommended.
