The Italian Machine (David Cronenberg 1976)
A trio of bikers liberate an Italian motorcycle from an art collector who wants it for display only. A trashy, camp, drug-fuelled delight from director David Cronenberg.
This early Cronenberg short features an array of unconventional characters and eccentric philosophies, maintaining a typically ambivalent attitude towards its protagonists.
When motorbike fanatic Lionel (Gary McKeehan) learns that a rare and prized Ducati has been bought by a rich art collector purely for the purpose of display, he enlists the help of his friends to liberate the motorbike.
The Italian Machine is an episode for a Canadian TV series.
