In the heart of motorsports, the iconic rosso corsa, or “racing red,” defines Ferrari’s legacy. Michael Mann’s gripping tale from the summer of 1957 unveils the challenges faced by the legendary Italian F1 car manufacturer, Ferrari, teetering on the brink of financial collapse. Enzo Ferrari, the founder, grapples with personal dilemmas, torn between his wife and mistress. This vibrant red became emblematic of Ferrari’s high-speed racing machines, their sleek designs crowned with the emblematic prancing stallion.
The backdrop is the adrenaline-charged world of Formula 1 in 1957. Enzo Ferrari, a former racer, confronts a looming bankruptcy that threatens the empire he and his wife, Laura, painstakingly built over a decade. Their already strained relationship is further tested by the tragic loss of their son, Dino. Amidst personal turmoil, Enzo faces challenges recognizing his son Piero with Lina Lardi. Yet, the indomitable spirit of Ferrari’s racers shines as they gear up for the perilous 1,000-mile Mille Miglia race across Italy, pushing their limits for the love of speed and victory.
