Running is our passion and so is movie-watching. We were very excited to find De Toutes Nos Forces (The Finisher) listed as one of the many exciting movies that will be featured in the coming French Art & Film Festival 2015.
Although is not a 100% movie about running per se, we would recommend you, running enthusiasts to watch it. It tells the inspiring take of a wheelchair-bound young man, Julien who challenges his father to compete with him in the "Ironman" triathlon.
Such passionate, emotional and dramatic movie should be enjoyed on a big screen, not as illegal download. :)
Release year: 2013
Running time: 86 min
Director: Niels Tavernier
Cast: Jacques Gamblin, Alexandra Lamy, Fabien Heraud
Former winning athlete, Paul lives in his Alpine chalet with his wife and his son. His couple is disintegrating and his relationship with his 17-years-old handicapped son, Julien, is increasingly distant. One day, Julien, who dreams of adventures despite his handicap, invites him to compete with him in the Ironman of Nice, a challenging 226 kms triathlon. Around them, a whole family reconnects in an attempt to achieve this exploit.
