Beautiful Film
27 July 2019 | by emcebeSee all my reviews

Such a truly beautiful film, tugs the heartstrings but also displays family issues with a disabled teenager but best of all family love and great friendship as father and son come together against the odds to compete in an event that even the fittest of people often avoid. A simple story, filmed beautifully through the French countryside with a great cast who made this story very credible. We thoroughly enjoyed it !
