Storyline

A documentary, photographed in black-and-white, with a hip jazz soundtrack, looks at the boys and coach of a small but accomplished boxing club near Portland, Oregon. The film focuses on the coach, former Olympic contender and pro athlete Andy Minsker, and tells not only the story of his devotion to his young athletes, but hints at childhood obsticles which may have prompted Minsker, as an adult, to give his students guidance, support and love with such enthuasism and dedication.

Portrait of a Boxer
1 September 2001 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

Bruce Weber, the photographer who's recently created an uproar with his hot, hot, hot, A&F catalogues tries his hand at movie making with a documentary portrait of Andy Minsker. Minsker is an amateur boxer, turned pro, who runs a boxing club for young men and boys in Oregon. Minsker is really not much more than a kid himself.

Minsker is a likeable guy and he and his family are presented in the honest, `I call them as I see them' style that is characteristic of rural lower middle class families in America.

As with any Weber product there is a generous helping of toothsome male skin in evidence. From the opening credits that include close-ups of each of the kids in his boxing club (the youngest is 8) to his horsing around with them in the water on a trip to a local beach we see a lot of Minsker and the kids in his club. It's all wholesome clean fun and we see Minsker being the best kind of role model he knows how to be.
