The Finishers is a 2013 French drama film on DVD, directed by Nils Tavernier.

Julien is 17, has a great sense of humour, bags of charm, and is wheelchair-bound due to cerebral palsy.

Despite their love for him, his family is gradually falling apart under the strain of dealing with his disability. In a bid to bond with his father, Julien challenges him to participate with him in the Ironman race in Nice (French Riviera), a triathlon in which his father has previously competed.

This trial is already exceptional, but it becomes almost impossible if one has to help a disabled youth throughout the course. Beyond the sporting exploit, this is the story of one family’s exemplary combat, and a moving portrait of the love between a father and his son.


The Finishers Movie Reviews

“I cannot tell you how much I cried at the end. Honestly, it was embarrassing… it's a lovely story of father/son bonding in a truly lovely, emotional way.” Margaret Pomeranz, ABC1's at the Movies

“Heartfelt…Ex­plores a singular tale of achievement and will.” Philippa Hawker, Sydney Morning Herald

“Undeniably moving” The Hollywood Reporter

“Goes the distance, thanks in large part to believable performances by the leads and vivid footage of the big race…fans of inspirational sports drama will be challenged not to cheer.” Variety

“A story of courage and endurance…Conveys a sense of exhilaration and personal triumph.” The Australian

“Touching and wonderful…better than THE INTOUCHABLES” The FilmStage.com

“A winner…extra­ordinarily affecting” MoveableFeast.com
