A poignant and uplifting film. The photography is amazing considering the circumstances, and the editing superb. This film is not just for the cycling enthusiast, it has something for everyone; my parents raved about it and they haven’t seen a saddle since childhood.

A truly lovely, honest and interesting film. I saw this last weekend as the finale to the Adventure Film Festival in Dorset — couldn\‘t have asked for a better end to a fantastic weekend, though trying to see to drive home through moist eyes was tricky! Had the added bonus of Tom sitting in front of us for the Omidvar Brothers screening too.

This is a travel film with a twist — I\‘ve been recommending it to everyone I know…

Janapar is much more than your typical travel/adventure film. It’s a coming of age story chronicling one man’s struggle to choose the best road in life.

Tom’s candid real-time narration gives an honest glimpse into the challenges faced by solo cycle tourers. He’s managed to capture decisive moments of his journey, holding nothing back.

The cinematography is at times spectacular, with sweeping shots of Tom slogging through the Sahara.
With her natural charm and beauty, it’s really Tenny that steals the show. Her determination and strength are inspirational.

Janapar is a great film to get you into the head of an adventurer. AND it’s a good old-fashioned love story with a happy ending.

Critics’ reviews of Janapar


“The best documentaries are mixed bags, evoking a range of emotional or intellectual response from a small amount of information or a specific, idiosyncratic pursuit. Bicycling around the world is certainly such a pursuit, and Janapar is elegantly edited and surprisingly well shot considering the tiny size of the film crew.“
Anchorage Press, August 2014


“The film transforms from what I thought would be a predictable documentary about an amazing cross-cultural trip with a few mishaps along the way into one of the most unusual yet endearing and uplifting love stories I have seen…“
