Moto Borgatoro

Part documentary, part pulp action film, all love and pure passion: "Moto Borgatoro" follows curmudgeon/savant mechanic Peter Boggia and the birth of his custom 1979 Moto Guzzi Le Mans into creation.

Mind you this film is not your normal bike build movie by design; no grinder sparks, no silhouette shots, no dramatic music. Been there seen that. This one is pure adrenaline, and hopefully tightens your pants like riding the bike would.

The film has received praise from the limited amount of industry people given the opportunity to experience. Filmmaker and Moto-enthusist alike claim that it's got "Fellini roots with Tarantino fruits". We love praise that rhymes.

Love bikes, hate bike, or know nothing about them, this film is juicy enough for anyone to quickly fall in love with Peter and his bad-ass machine.

Add Director Biography
Director Statement

Roberto Serrini loves three things; Film, bikes and film's about bikes. He is an avid rider, and an avid filmmaker, usually making commercial eye candy. Every once and a while he finds a moment to make a film that is personal to him. Moto Borgatoro is one of these films. Peter Boggia is a super secretive person. A motorcycle savant if you will. He never has let anyone film him or his shop and it took 5 very long years to finally convince him to let someone in. That someone was me. The film itself is a personal look at a man doing what he loves, and the beautiful creation that came out of it. It's raw, funny, and sexy, shot by the incomparable Ramsey Fendall (recently noted for filming "Seymour: An Introduction" with Eathan Hawke). This is not another bike build film. It has the frenetic edit style of a Gaspar Noe film, and the cool edge of a Tarantino piece. In the end, its just fun, and really the comments about it so far speak for itself. Anyway, enjoy.
