Enzo Ferrari was certainly one of the most powerful names, and probably one of the most powerful and influential men, in motoring history. As a young boy, Enzo dreamt of being an opera singer, a journalist or a racing driver, instead he created one of the most recognised company names in the modern world.
During his 50-year reign he rarely left Maranello – the spiritual home of his beloved race teams and birthplace of the sports cars against which all others are judged – and remained a very private man. This superb racing documentary by acclaimed Formula One producer John Tully reveals the essence of the man and his machines. The story is told from childhood, through 4 decades of racecar development, to a visit by the Pope (in an open top Ferrari Pope-Mobile of course!) shortly before Ferrari’s death in 1988. Narrated by Christopher Lee, this is the definitive Ferrari documentary. Includes exclusive interviews with Enzo himself and many of those who were key to his years of glory: Niki Lauda, Baron Toulo de Graffenried, Phil Hill, Tony Brooks, Clay Regazzoni, Mauro Forghieri. A well produced, historically significant and fascinating film.
