Not very well made in places, but had some nice moments !
1 September 2004 | by (Worthing, England) – See all my reviews

This film was quite a touching story of a college professor who discovers that he has a son living in France as a result of hearing through an old French friend that the boy's mother who the professor had an affair with had recently died in an accident.The professor of course has a burning desire to meet his son.The children's acting did leave a little to be desired but had a few touching moments by young actor Sebastien Dungan playing Jean-Claude. At one point during a scene in the professor's home a microphone is actually seen at the top of the picture which for me spoiled the film a little.There were however some lovely scenes set in France towards the beginning of the film, and on the beach prior to the end of the film.

The music score was lovely and was by French composer Georges Delarue.Quite a tear-jerker in places and worth seeing if you can get a copy.
