Feel Good Father-Son Relationship
Un bon tireur (A good shooter) is a French movie directed by Actor Aurélien Recoing. Daniel (Alex Descas) is an aging drunkard father who was a great basketball player, but now barred from the local basketball club where his son Eric (Louis Njinon Ngninkeu) plays basketball. Daniel has high hopes for his son, and wants to teach him master moves of basketball. Both father Daniel and son Eric are very close to each other. As much as Eric takes care of the drunkard father, the father is a keen observer of his son's career and interests.When Daniel pushes his son Eric to practice basketball in the middle of the night in pouring rain - next morning Eric confesses to Daniel that he does not want to become a basketball player but a veterinarian.Unexpectedly without a blink of his eye - Daniel accepts Eric's decision and is proud of his son's choice. That makes Daniel a very good shooter - a good father. This is a short 24 minute well directed. movie. Louis Njinon Ngninkeu as a 14 years old kid - looks so cute - he presents the vulnerability of not being a child and not yet becoming a man - and the way he tolerates, cares and loves his father - is a treat to watch. Similarly Alex Descas too presents a grim reminder of his aging self and melancholic past. It is a feel good father-son bonding relationship movie. Well recommended. I will go with 7 out of 10 for this.
