With his youth as an Ironman champion behind him, Paul distances himself from his disabled son. When Julien suggests the seemingly crazy idea that they join forces to compete in a triathlon in Nice, an incredible journey of persistence and determination begins. The characters are inspired by a true story in this emotionally involving film that will melt the hardest heart. It features moving and fully committed performances from a terrific cast, including Alexandra Lamy as Julien's mother, Claire. With Rocky-esque training montages and nail-biting sequences in the stunning mountains of Nice (shot at the actual 2012 Ironman competition), director Nils Tavernier turns the conventions of the sports film on its head. You might even be inspired to run yourself after seeing this stirring family story! ...The Finishers ( De toutes nos forces )

Update August 2015. This has now been released on Amazon as an Instant Video to rent or buy. I saw it and thoroughly enjoyed it. I predict it will become a classic in family fare and be of great interest in special needs venues. It portrays many great values including renewal, loyalty, and determination, plus gorgeous mountain scenery. This is a great film.
What follows in “De toutes nos forces” (“The Finishers”) is unashamedly sentimental, but it works thanks to the effective performances from veteran Jacques Gamblin and non-professional actor Fabien Héraud. Director Nils Tavernier keeps the film moving at a slick pace throughout, and though the storyline itself is predictable, the conclusion of his father-and-son drama is very moving.
With likable characters and credible competition scenes, “De toutes nos forces” is a winner.
