i totally agree it's a really good documentary. Prost is brutally honest and one sees him like never before. It Must have taken a lot out of him to have to go back to that time. I've seen several documentaries about the final moments before the accident where they study what is happening to the car frame by frame, but in reality it's shocking to see how fast it happened.

If you get chance to see it on the big screen though symon do so, the in car shots are amazing in that format.

Yes, loads of showings in London, it's on in Watford on the 21st of June. I think it will be really good on the big screen. Or on DVD later, especially on my friends huge plasma on blue ray, they are mad on F1 an go all over the place to watch.

I'm yet to see it. The film was discussed on Radio 5:

BBC iPlayer - 5 live Sport: Ayrton Senna

It's my Kennedy moment. I'm not sure I'll see it. I think I'd rather have my memories of that day as they are without revisiting them. Motor Sport magazine were doing a showing of it in London for 70 a ticket with the Director and Jo Ramirez there doing a Q&A after.

London appears closest. That is about 65 miles away.

Good film as it is, a 130 mile round trip is probably not worth it

Just been to see this today. Can highly highly recommend it. Obviously upsetting at times, but also very uplifting as well.

Well worth it!

Here's a podcast from the Motor Sport magazine of their post showing of the film discussion with Manish Pandy and Jo Ramirez:

Motor Sport Senna evening podcast | Motor Sport Magazine

I'm yet to listen to it, and it probably contains plot spoliers. I'd put money on someone asking why Donington '93 wasn't in it.

Although initially only in London, The Senna movie is now showing at many cinemas across the UK. I saw it in Swindon last Friday.........

A good film with plenty action and a real insight into the man himself.

Tip - Read the Senna biography as well. An excellent read, it tells you the story before F1 and fills in the gaps in the film.

yes

I have not seen such kind of any movie till date. But i would like to see such kind of movie. I mostly like to watch romantic movies which is my favorite genre. Like titanic is my favorite movie in this category. I have seen this movie lots of times and enjoyed too much.
