MY FATHER THE HERO

What You Need To Know:

Gerard Depardieu stars as a divorced father who takes his spoiled 14-year-old daughter on a Caribbean vacation to get reaquainted, only to find that his sweet little girl lies to everyone in sight and uses him to further her own romantic agenda, telling everyone that he is her lover in order to impress a young man who has caught her eye, in the lackluster and only mildly humorous MY FATHER THE HERO.

Content:

(H, LL, V, S, N, A/D, M, B) Humanist worldview; 10 obscenities & 4 profanities--3 exclamatory; mild, slapstick violence; implied sexual immorality; partial nudity--very revealing clothing on 14-year-old girl; casual use of alcohol; habitual lying, later confronted but not dealt with until film's end when found out; and, unintentional example of the devastating effect that an absent father has on a young teen-age daughter.

More Detail:

Gerard Depardieu stars as a divorced father who takes his spoiled 14-year-old daughter on a Caribbean vacation to get reaquainted, only to find that his sweet little girl lies to everyone in sight and uses him to further her own romantic agenda, telling everyone that he is her lover in order to impress a young man who has caught her eye, in the lackluster and only mildly humorous MY FATHER THE HERO. This charade-motif makes for a few laughs, but gets old very quickly. The one truth that manages to come through, aside from the obvious that lying is wrong, is the devastating, negative effect an absent father has on a young teen-age daughter. Andre has never taken time to build a relationship with Niki and, in short, has robbed her of the love and security a father should provide. Her behavior tells it all. The experience does help Andre decide to ask his Paris girlfriend to marry him. However, since he has already deserted one wife and a daughter, are we now supposed to feel good about his decision to marry his mistress?

While nicely photographed and adequately produced, MY FATHER THE HERO is not the story of a real hero. A real hero makes sacrifices for the good of his family. A real hero knows that love is a decision, not just a feeling. Indigestion is a feeling, not unlike the one experienced when watching this film.
