Amazing losers. Another planet

The documentary tells the story of one of the most difficult and popular cycling races in the world - the Giro d'Italia. But not about honor and glory. The heroes of this tape are the so-called "gregors" - athletes who overcome the greatest challenges and remain behind the leaders - "losers" who have no right to personal victories.

"Gregoriai" team leaders are provided with water and food, help overcome difficult sections, cover from the wind, that is, they create all the conditions for the first to finish. Heroes, with their sacrifice, pave the way to victory for others and become universal examples of self-sacrifice for others. According to film critic Rasa Pauštytė, "The Amazing Losers..." continues and complements the tradition of documentary cinema, according to which a good film about sports is one that is not about sports, but about universal human truths, values ​​and dramas.
