    Eric Escoffier - La fureur de vivre DVD

    Eric Escoffier - La fureur de vivre

    Bertrand Delapierre (2019)

    The 'Escoffier style' is a unique cocktail of grace, speed and nerve. Minimal equipment, no tiresome need for recognition, no stress but instead betting it all on the very limits of what is thought possible along with an established daredevil reputation. Being independent, fast-paced, improvising, these were the rules he lived by. From 1985 onwards, everything he did was a success: delta, firsts, climbing, race driving... As he liked to say: "Nothing is impossible". He seemed indestructible. However, on 11 September 1987, a car accident left him hemiplegic, but not to be defeated, he soon set numerous goals.
