Gonchi, The Movie

Post by mattia2 » 1 month ago



Just found this, does anyone ever seen this? From what i've heard it's considered one of the best motorsport documentaries, and tells a story that not many people seems to know.
(If anyone find an online version or a way to buy the dvd with at least english subtitles pls tell me :) )

It was on netflix italia for a while, but i've missed it too. I saw though that's avaible for rent on amazon video, but that's not how i want to see it, i want the DVD, or at least having the file on my PC for ever.

Gonzalo appeared to be such a nice person, and cheerfully enthusiastic, yet still determined to make it. In many ways, he reminded me of Pedro Rodríguez. To think that he's longer gone now than Pedro had been at the time of his passing is just mind boggling!!


Ah, wait - Ferner, you flunked your math test again! But y'all know what I meant, anyway, don't you... :sarcasm: :whistling:

Gonchi is an excellent film, it was originally on Netflix but not sure if it still is. We discussed it here a few years ago - viewtopic.php?p=274004#p274004

If you can find it I would recommend it. Well worth a watch.

Very emotional movie, watched on netflix's a few years back
I don't think people talk abut it a lot because 6-7 weeks later Greg Moore crashed and died
The Hans Device would have saved him Gonchi!!
