Video Clorophilla Videos

2.5/5 (2 Reviews)

Product Description

Clorophilla is a truly innovative mtb freeride film, which does not only show something, but also communicates a message. It is a film which highlights values like freedom, fun, friendship, and unity, rather than the riders' technical skills, all in a magnificent scenery where Mother Nature has the leading role.

Strengths:    Great scenery
Wonderful cinematography

Weaknesses:    No excitement.
WAY TO SHORT for the money
To expensive. You are pretty much paying $1.00 per minute if you buy at full price.

Bottom Line:   
This was a nice tourists video. That is pretty much it. You don't even see any mountain biking until 4 minutes into the film and the film is only 29 min. long. I am a beginner and want to get pumped up for riding and this is more like a bed time story. They did a great job with the opening credits, but beyond that the editing is pretty bad. Also if you like commentary or any kind of script forget it. I think there is maybe 15 word spoken throughout the entire thing.

If you want something very chill and tame buy this at a big discount. If you want more than that don't get it.

Strengths:    Good scenery, different location than the norm, a different type of film. Filming is interesting, shows how a bunch of buddies were able to pull off some impressive shots using home made devices.

Weaknesses:    Riding isn't up to "standard", but it isn't meant to be. Not a DVD you'd put in for the kids under 25 who want to see McCaul style riding.
A note to the film makers though. Your bikes are too big for your style of riding!! Banshee Screams with Marz Monster T's are for BIG drops and that's about it, for the type of riding in the film a Chapparel with a 66 would have been much better and 5 kilos (10 lbs) lighter!!

Bottom Line:   
This is an Italian tourism/nature film that happens to have some bikes in it. The riders are competent, but not world class, many viewers can ride better, but again that's not what this video is about. It is mainly about a bunch of guys enjoying riding, kinda reminds me of some of the early 80's snowboard videos only much better filmed.

NOT a film for freerider types who want to see the latest stuff, there are tons of DVDs that deliver that, go get the latest NWD - it rips. This would be better for the older, slightly freeride/trail oriented crowd who are tired of the classic jumping/drop films.

It is a good film not a great one, so...
