Allez, Eddy!

Synopsis: The eleven year old cycling talent Freddy is the son of a butcher in an idyllic village in no man's land. His isolated life is turned upside down completely in 1975 when the first supermarket in the village opens its doors. To mark the opening the supermarket organizes a cycling race and the winner of that match will meet Eddy Merckx. Freddy's father is a fervent opponent of the supermarket and the competition, but Freddy subscribes behind his back. By participating in the race a new world opens, not only for Freddy, but also for all those around him.

Here, Marjet. Take it.

- Unwarranted pride.

It won't get you anywhere.

I'll get where I want to go and

I don't need to go anywhere else.

Here, put it away. Right.

So this twice, OK?

What's that?

Your bike is up in the air.

Do you cycle up there?

- Yes.

You must be as good as Eddy Merckx.

- I definitely am.

I know you are. Come here.

Here, I've brought you something too.

Molteni, it goes with your T-shirt.

And this. Open it.

What does it say?

- Freddy.

Here, let me put it on you.

Come here.

Wow, that looks smart!

Mum says the girls can come

and stay at your house.

Yes, they're coming for

their dresses for the party.

Can I come too?

- You have to come.

Can you ask Mum?

I'll ask her right away.

Spin round.

Keep spinning, keep spinning.

And then you...

Chest. Chest against chest.

And spin and spin and spin.

Honestly, Angel!

Phew, Angel.

Oh dear.

I feel almost euphoric,

like I've had an orgasm!

It must've been a long time since

you've had an orgasm then!

Listen to you!

Your husband is never home.

It's much easier with

a husband who's never home.


- It is.

Variety is the spice of life, Angel.

After all, we only live once.

Here, have a chocolate.

No. Honestly, Andre, you...

In the city everyone does

all their shopping at a supermarket.

I do too.

- We're not in the city here.


- We're not in the city here.

Be glad a supermarket is coming,

it'll mean an end to all the hassle.

You should be ashamed of yourself!

The shop was your father's, your

grandfather's, your great-grandfather's.

Come on, Angel, smile for a change.

You only live once.

Be careful.

- Yeah.

Oh dear, I've dropped my handbag.

Aunt Pauline?

- Of course.

She's more dead than alive.

- Exactly.

I don't want anyone dying at my party.
