Veloce Come il Vento tells the story of Giulia De Martino, 17 years old and 90 pounds of nerve and dedication, she carries the weight of her family on her shoulders. Her mother left long ago and, when her father dies, it is up to her to look after her little brother who never laughs, and the family car racing garage, which has been turning out rally champions for generations. Overwhelmed with debt, Giulia, who’s a promising racing driver herself, must win the GT championships at all costs if she wants to save the house she lives in. To do this she must put together a team, whether she likes it or not, with her brother Loris, a former top GT driver himself who has become totally unreliable since falling into the spiral of drugs, but who still has an undeniable talent and instinct for cars. Based on the real life story of Carlo Capone, European Rally Champion in 1984, this multi awarded film portrays talent and deterioration, competition and toxic love in a way that is both accurate and realistic. The scenes on the track, all of which were filmed live without the use of any special effects, are as good as those you see in big international productions. Once again, the Italian road to genre is paved with emotion and humanity, the action is supported by nuanced and fragile characters and the driving force of the story is desperation but also love, redemption, inescapable family ties and a powerful passion for something to believe in.
