reasonably well composed account of a dedicated athlete. unconventional in that he designed and built his own bicycle, but the level of training is brought out front and center. they probably overdid the german head of the federation''s opposition to him to give it a dramatic head, but I don''t doubt there might have been some resistance to his unconventional way. the business of his depressions was really underplayed, barely an undercurrent, while it was likely a major issue for him. nice film, brings you a smile.

I''m an avid cyclist and this is a classic cycling film, up there with Breaking Away and American Fliers, which every cyclist must at least see. The UCI in the film is just as restrictive and stodgy in real life, so bonus points for reality. And of course, the portrayal of Graeme''s mental health struggles are all too relatable as well. I recommend the film for cyclists and those interested in a tale of sporting triumph

Bought this for my dad who is a cycling freak with seven different bikes and 20 different jerseys! I bought it used in "Like New" condition (which I recommend looking for). The price was right, there were no scratches, the disc played perfectly, and the case was in excellent shape.

This is a great, "based on a true story" type of film. A story of triumph and ingenuity. It features some good actors and decent cinematography (it''s rated at 7.0/10.0 at IMDB). The Flying Scotsman is a movie for everyone, not just cyclists--but if you are a cyclist, I think you would thoroughly enjoy this movie even more.

It''s pretty crazy how this guy built a bike out of washing machine parts and scrap metal that he used to break the world hour record in 1993. He challenged the accepted view of what bikes should be and how cyclists should ride during competition--some of the best parts of the movie are his comical clashes with the International Cycling Union who repeatedly disqualify him for his unconventional bikes and style of riding.

Whats more amazing about this guy is that he suffers from intense bouts of depression through his whole career, yet he still breaks records and takes numerous titles--all without anti-depressants and performance enhancing drugs!

Unfortunately Graham Obree has bipolar disorder which denied him the ability to continue the fight with cycling authorities who removed his record rides because his record setting bicycle didn''t have the proper dimensions. His position was in fact superior to even today''s record setters though is quite dangerous because of the unique position the rider. However, the vehicle had two wheels and was human powered and his records should have remained recognized. There''s no doubt that others would have copied his achievements and who knows where it would have led?

One of the hardest nuts to crack in the genre of sports films is how to make a good film about cycling. Breaking Away got about as close as you can get, but that was really more about growing up and coming of age, and cycling was but the vehicle for the story. Graeme Obree''s story is not only a cycling story, but a story about one of the most peculiar aspects of the sport - the World Hour Record and track cycling in general. I think the film did as good a job as possible at telling the story, and making it as accessible as possible to a wide audience without making cycling insiders groan with disgust. I think some cycling outsiders will be a bit stumped and confused by it. Apparently, much of the details of Obree''s life are tweaked for the movie, which is unfortunate.

I was seriously annoyed to see that the Union Cycliste International and the various officials (Verbruggen?) of the organization that made Obree''s challenge so miserable were not able to be named by name. I hope they were in the book, but I suppose the filmmakers had legal reasons not to name them. They were not even allowed to use the actual rainbow champion jersey that Obree won fair and square - twice. It is even worse in hindsight when you realize that at the same time that the UCI were hassling Obree, the sport was rotting from the inside with doping. What are your priorities, UCI?

The actors, Boyd and especially Cox, are excellent. As is Laura Fraser, who play''s Obree''s wife and embodied the spirit of the wonderful supporting spouses that stand behind and believe in so many athletes chasing a dream.

I''m just home from enjoying one of the most exciting cinema experiences of my 51 years. As a recreational cyclist, and having trained hard and at least attempted racing, I knew that I would enjoy a film which focused on the life of a real athlete - rather than a fictional styling (Breaking Away) or one race (Hell On Wheels).

With 50% Scot blood in my veins I felt at home with the voices and scenery, but I found myself quickly intensely involved with the characters and swept away by the quality of the cinematography and the stunning surround sound. I''ve pre-ordered the DVD - but this is the very definition of big screen cinema entertainment.

In the late night screening I was lucky to have a whole row to myself - so no one witnessed my emotional gasps, or the times during the races when I was literally shaking with excitement.

I loved the way that Graeme''s struggle with manic depression is given respectful depth - especially since his illness was an integral part of what drove him obsessively to achieve. Too few films deal effectively with the stress and reality of being bipolar. We need to see that he is loved, respected and supported as living with a mental illness, but also that he can accept polite active intervention.

This is a remarkable story - extremely well told. Full praise to all of the cast - especially Jonny Lee Miller, who looks and lives the part and to Brian Cox, one of Britain''s greatest dramatic actors (see "The Lost Language Of Cranes").

I''ve read that the film is a more than adequate precis of Graeme''s story, so I''m very much looking forward to reading his autobiography as well.

The Flying Scotsman, starring Jonny Lee Miller, tells the story of Graeme Obree, a famous British cyclist from before such sports stars were really famous in the UK. A rival of Chris Boardman''s, Obree won world championships and set the world mile records whilst reinventing how to build and sit on a bike and struggling with mental health issues. It''s a moving tale, told brilliantly in the book on which the film is based. The film cannot match the book''s level of detail and makes the usual artistic compromises with the facts, but (or because) is still an enjoyable watch. Obree''s disputes with the governing body of cycling as he pioneered new, more aerodynamic, sitting positions and more efficient bike designs (including famously one which took parts from a washing machine), were a central part of his cycling career. In the film the cycling authorities are rather cartoon caricature bad guys, although given the depths of controversy to which cycling administrators have sunk at times this is perhaps not as far off the mark as it seems. More problematic for the film is the way the moments of great achievements - breaking the world hour record - and of great darkness - the mental health struggles - all fall a little flat as they are rushed through without really engaging the audience''s emotions. Even if you know nothing about cycling, the film explains what is happening and why clearly - and the story of an obstinate, flawed genius battling rivals and the authorities makes for a great tale even if you have no interest in sport. The film does a decent job at telling that tale, but doesn''t quite hit the mark.

Just a film which was cheaper to purchase as a DVD second hand rather than buy on a streaming service. This feels more like a documentary but to me Graeme Obree was the bloke that built a bike from his washing machine, nice true storey by all accounts.

Firstly, excuse my english because i''m french ! I discovered Obree when i was 15. Usually, in july, when you read newspaper like "L''Equipe", they are always writing about Tour de France''s results. That is why i was surprised after having read that a scotstich cyclist had broken the hour record with 51,596 kms ! The most curious thing was obree''s egg position on his bike ! What an amazing story ! In my opinion, he was more than an excellent rider, he was a genius ! Because after wcf''s new rules about bikes created in 1994 in order to forbiden Obre to use his special machine, he succedeed in becoming again 4 kms on track world champion in 1995. This year, he came again on the track with the "Superman" position ! I was sad when i learnt on a cycling website he tried to suicide twice. To conclude, i would say that this movie is a shining and necessary tribute to Obree ! Unfortunatelly for the french man i''m, there was not french subtitles included in this dvd !

Jonny Lee Miller stars in this role, sensitively portraying the troubled character and the dark depression of the great man''s career, who was a rival to Chris Boardman in his attempts at one of cycling''s toughest challenges, the Hour Record - which Eddy Merckx described as "the hardest ride I have ever done" after breaking the record in 1972. This is a must for cycling fans with an interest in the history of cycle sport and anyone with an interest in one of the greatest innovators of cycling who helped to push the boundaries of what was possible and challenging convention with his unorthodox approach.. or ''marginal gains'' as a certain Dave Brailsford coined the phrase (could Obree be the next British Cycling Performance Director to take his place?!). A slow burner, but a great film with believable characters and a feel good factor to balance a little sadness that tells the story of The Flying Scotsman Graeme Obree.

Excellent film. Shows true determination and spirit. 4 stars because I work in Mental Health and one of the people I see has Bi-Polar. She also uses running, cycling and swimming (sometimes to excess) to help cope with the illness. She recommended this film to me as an example of how people cope with the illness. I just wish the directors had been more honest and upfront about the illness he was contending with.
