Give Me Wings: A Great Idea for a Family Vacation Adventure (review)

To (re)discover this Sunday on France 2.

Christian, a visionary scientist, studies wild geese. For his son, a teenager obsessed with video games, the idea of ​​spending a vacation with his father in the great outdoors is a nightmare. However, father and son will come together around a crazy project: saving an endangered species, thanks to Christian's ULM! Then begins an incredible and perilous journey…

If you dream of adventure, France 2 has thought of you, by programming this weekend Give me wings, by Nicolas Vanier. See you at 9:10 p.m. Sunday. In the meantime, here is the review of First.

After Siberia The Wild Odyssey or the Solognese campaign of Skip school, Nicolas Vanier takes us into the air alongside the wild geese. An ornithologist decided to teach the geese a new migration route because the one they are used to takes them over places frequented by hunters or over cities and their electrical wires. . The story is true, inspired by the journey of Christian Moullec, a scientist who flies with endangered birds in order to save them. It is reminiscent of a similar adventure recounted in The Wild Flight in 1997. But behind the environmentalist story and the lyrical epic, the director of The Last Trapper takes care to weave a true initiatory story through the development of a relationship between the hero and his adolescent son, unreceptive at first glance to nature and altruism. The round trip in a microlight from the Camargue to Norway will transform it. Through the transmission of a passion, father and son will take on a challenge that involves disobedience and emancipation. The film gains in humor and lightness thanks to the fine interpretation of Jean-Paul Rouve. The actor brings a second degree and a distance which makes the adventure less clichéd than expected. He and Mélanie Doutey form a very credible parental couple whose subplot irrigates the son's courageous journey. In short, a great idea for a family adventure for the holidays.
