| Danish rider Ole Ritter tries to beat the hour record
A documentary about Ole Ritter's attempt to break the hour record. The movie takes place in Mexico City. 'The impossible hour' is not as good as Leth's other cycling movies, but still worth the time. This is more of a straight up documentary, than 'A Sunday in hell' fx.

Still 'The impossible ...' gives a fine look in to the world of pro cycling, and a equally fine portrait of danish rider Ole Ritter, and his relationship to teammates on the Bianchi-team.

Most notable is a scene where Ritter defends himself to international reporters, and use Leth to get the right message out.
