New Line Cinema logo
  • PG-13
  • 1994

Professional bull-riding. The roughest, most dangerous, most grueling competitive sport. Life or death ... victory or defeat ... decided atop a 2,000 pound bull in 8 Seconds. This riveting drama based on the life of Rodeo World Champion Lane Frost (Luke Perry -- TV's "John From Cincinnati," TV's "Beverly Hills, 90210") tells the story of his dreams, ambition, perseverance, and sacrifice that lead to an Oklahoma boy's meteoric rise to fame as a champion bull-rider before his rough and tumble life is tragically cut short. To stay atop a bucking bull, holding on with just one hand, takes equal parts skill, courage, luck and determination from those willing to risk all for the ultimate thrill in 8 Seconds. Co-starring Stephen Baldwin ("The Usual Suspects," "The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas") and Emmy Award-nominee Cynthia Geary (TV's "Northern Exposure," "Smoke Signals").

8 Seconds Film Synopsis

Филмът разказва историята на Лейн Фрост, световен шампион за 1987 г. по яздене на бикове, неговото семейство, приятелството му с Тъф Хедеман (трикратен шампион), както и с Коуди Ламберт.

Bullenreiten gehört zu den härtesten und gefährlichsten Sportarten der Welt: 8 Sekunden entscheiden über Leben oder Tod, Sieg oder Niederlage. Mit Hartnäckigkeit und großen Opfern gelingt Lane Frost eine rasante Karriere in der Arena. Doch das Glück bleibt nicht lange auf seiner Seite. Der Film zeigt die Lebens- und Karrierestationen des legendären Rodeoreiters Lane Frost, der als Held in der Arena zu Tode kam. Der rührselige US-Heimatfilm zeichnet das Bild des netten Jungen, der bestrebt ist, der Beste zu werden, auch wenn es nur gilt, seinem Vater etwas zu beweisen ...

Ο μεγαλωμένος στην Οκλαχόμα Λέιν Φροστ υπήρξε ένας από τους πιο νεαρούς πρωταθλητές στην ιστορία του ροντέο, με ειδικότητα να καβαλάει ταύρους. Νιώθοντας φοβερή καταπίεση από τον πατέρα του, ο Λέιν στράφηκε στην αγάπη των θαυμαστών του, πράγμα που δημιούργησε προβλήματα στον γάμο του.

Ayant grandi en Utah, le jeune Lane Frost apprend l'art du bull riding, une discipline du rodéo, auprès de son père Clyde. Dès son adolescence, il participe à de nombreuses compétitions avec ses amis Tuff Hedeman et Cody Lambert. Il y rencontre notamment sa femme, Kellie Kyle...

Pellicola biografica incentrata sulla vita dell'eroe statunitense Lane Frost, celebre campione del rodeo. Una cronaca che inizia dalla gioventù, quando Lane, grazie agli insegnamenti del padre, inizia a frequentare le gare e l'abile cowboy Tuff, suo acerrimo avversario. Nel 1987 si sposa con l'amata Kelly e con il suo supporto riesce a imporsi come miglior cowboy nel torneo mondiale.

오클라호마의 작은 마을에 사는 소년 레인 프로스트. 그는 젊은 시절 로데오경기 선구자였던 아버지 클라이드 프로스트의 아들로 전설적인 로데오 챔피언을 열망하던 아버지의 염원을 물려 받는다. 거대한 황소 위에 있는 작은 아들의 모습이 범상치 않음을 발견한 클라이드는 레인에게 일찍부터 엄격한 로데오 훈련을 시킨다. 열 여덟살 되던 해, 레인은 친구 터프 헤드만, 코디 램버트와 한 팀이 되어 첫 로데오 경기에 참석한다. 타고난 용모와 특유의 과감성으로 레인은 로데오계의 새 별로 급부상하고, 야생마 타기 부문 챔피언인 켈리를 만나 첫눈에 반하게 된다.사랑에 빠진 두사람은 어린 나이에 결혼을 해 가정을 꾸미고, 레인은 켈리의 도움에 힘입어 참가하는 경기마다 우승을 거두어 선전한다. 그러나 늘상 떨어져 사는 결혼 생활과 우승에 대한 중압감때문에 레인은 슬럼프에 빠지게 되고 그런 레인에게 친구 터프는 라스베가스 게임에 도전해 볼 것을 권유한다. 그것은 바로 33명의 전직 챔피언을 해치운 황소 레드록과의 결전이다. 반면 케리 역시 유명한 로데오 선수인 남편의 그늘에 가려 조금씩 지쳐간다. 그러던 어느날, 범민하던 켈리 앞에 옛 애인 마틴이 나타난다. 레드록과의 시합을 하루 남겨놓은 날, 질투에 휩싸인 레인은 이 일로 켈리와 심하게 다투게 되는데...

Lane Frost wil in de voetsporen van zijn vader treden, een oud rodeo-kampioen. De training is zwaar, maar hij boekt wel resultaten. Uiteindelijk bereikt hij de top.

Exatamente o tempo que os caubóis de rodeio precisam aguentar montados em um touro se quiserem conseguir uma nota dos juízes. Pode parecer um período curto. Mas, para eles, é como se fosse uma eternidade. O mesmo pode ser dito da história real da meteórica carreira de Lane Frost, um dos mais famosos e premiados peões de boiadeiro dos Estados Unidos e que morreu em 1989, aos 23 anos, no auge de sua atividade. Ao lado do lendário Tuff Hedeman, que é ao mesmo tempo seu mentor e principal rival, ele encantou plateias de todo o país com seu talento e carisma.

Фильм посвящен жизни Лейна Фроста — известного ковбоя и чемпиона мира по родео. Фильм показывает непростое детство Лейна, его борьбу на профессиональном фронте, а также историю любви с его женой.
