To the great shame of Jo, Tom is as excellent at maths as he is useless on the field. For a Canavaro, the legend can't stop here. He is prepared to create a rugby team for Tom against the will of the entire village and Tom himself.Written by
The premise of the movie is the relationship between a father and son and how rugby supposedly brings them together. There are several movies which have used sports to bring out the complexity of human relationships. This movie fails completely. The script has huge holes, the characterization is poor, the acting is lousy and trite. The director invests no time to either fleshing out the characters or the relationship between the father and son. The Director seems to have been sleep walking during the making of the movie. Most of the actors do the same. I saw it on a flight hoping that a French movie would be better than some of the Hollywood movies on offer. It was a waste of time. Avoid it
