Check out the new review of GIRL MEETS BIKE here:
Thanks to VMOL!
Eric is also an accomplished musician and his choices for background music shine through. This is his seventh feature film. One of the highlights of this movie is that Eric is an avid motorcycle enthusiast and rider. This clearly comes through in all the details about vintage bikes.
The iconic 1991 Moto Guzzi 1000S ridden by the main character Kat, a high school shop teacher who is smitten by this Italian V-twin. Although sometimes brooding and disaffected, she is fiercely independent, fearless, and free-spirited. Qualities that embodies most motorcycle riders, past and present. Actress Ruth Menard is excellent in this role.
The Moto Guzzi 1000S is Eric’s personal bike, and if one motorcycle is capable of earning a starring role, it's the 1000S. I enjoyed watching and listening to the other vintage bikes featured, including a 1972 Norton 750 Commando cafe' racer, a 1968 Triumph Bonneville rat bike, a classic red 1969 Triumph 650 Tiger and a cafe'd 1972 Honda CB350.
The other characters in the movie are interesting and unique, as well as the riding scenes and roads. The movie takes place outside of Milwaukee in the small towns of Wisconsin, but the scenes were shot mostly in Minnesota, a beautiful state to ride in during the summer months. I won’t give away any more about the story itself, but will conclude by saying if you like vintage motorcycles, action and drama, this is a movie you'll want to see. JJ Cerilli
