Allez! With the Tour de France’s visit to Sheffield only two weeks away, and after Wadjda, we were really in a cycling mood.

Local musicians Animat were there to perform their soundtrack, giving the film an added melancholy atmosphere that fitted its washed-out colours and grotesque characters. And our audience provided the hissing and cheering.
