Full Plot Details

The story of the monumental life and tragic death of legendary Brazilian motor-racing Champion, Ayrton Senna. Spanning the decade from his arrival in Formula One in the mid 80's, the film follows Senna's struggles both on track against his nemesis, French World Champion Alain Prost, and off it, against the politics which infest the sport. Sublime, spiritual yet, on occasion, ruthless - Senna conquers and transcends Formula One to become a global superstar. Privately, he is humble, almost shy, and fiercely patriotic, donating millions to his native Brasil and contemplating a life beyond motor-racing. Yet he is struck down in his prime on the blackest weekend in the history of the sport, watched live on television by 300 million people. Years on he is revered in Formula One as the greatest motor racing driver of all time - and in Brasil as a Saint.

Movie Reviews

What Culture - 10/10 by Shaun Munro If we define a classic documentary by its ability to transcend niche subject matter and engage all audiences, then the exhilarating and unbelievable Senna is one of cinema's recent best.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch - 10/10 by Joe Williams "Senna" is simply the greatest sports film I have ever seen.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch - 10/10 by Joe Williams With such supercharged material under the hood, a magnetic man behind the wheel and a nimble director manning the pits, Senna is simply the greatest sports film I have ever seen.
Time Out New York - 10/10 by Joshua Rothkopf Phenomenally sad yet exhilarating.
Salon.com - 9/10 by Andrew O'Hehir You don't have to know or care anything about Formula One auto racing, or ever have heard of the legendary Brazilian driver Ayrton Senna, to become fully drawn into this film's universe.
The A.V. Club - 9/10 by Alison Willmore Senna is considered one of motorsporting's greats, but Asif Kapadia's film also makes it clear he was a sort of artist, his talent accompanied by an unquenchable thirst for excellence and a belief that racing offered him a connection to God.
Entertainment Weekly - 9/10 by Lisa Schwarzbaum With exemplary use of archival footage, director Asif Kapadia expertly contrasts episodes of adrenaline-rush speed with moments of reflective slow motion to capture the addictive thrill and danger of the sport, as well as the personal values of the humble, spiritual sportsman.
Los Angeles Times - 9/10 by Kenneth Turan A documentary with the pace of a thriller, a story of motors and machines that is beyond compelling because of the intensely human story it tells.
Wall Street Journal - 9/10 by Joe Morgenstern What's most rewarding, though, is that Mr. Senna speaks extensively and eloquently for himself, and reveals himself to be an eminently human hero. He's thoughtful, even philosophical, about decisions that deprive him of seemingly well-earned victories.
Washington Post - 9/10 by Ann Hornaday Senna is what film critics might call a TMSI movie, as in: Trust me, see it.
Philadelphia Inquirer - 9/10 by Steven Rea Exhilarating and tragic.
Cinema Writer - 9/10 by Jay Antani Senna stands as a triumph of [its makers'] knack for story craft and their ability to sort through a staggering volume of material and piece it together into a unified, powerful narrative.
