Antonio, an unemployed man who finds a coveted job that requires a bicycle. When it is stolen on his first day of work, Antonio and his young son Bruno (Enzo Staiola) begin a frantic search, learning valuable lessons along the way. The movie focuses on both the relationship between the father and the son and the larger framework of poverty and unemployment in postwar Italy.

Of course you should watch the whole Decalogue set but the first feature is one of the strongest and helps set the tone.

The Trap (2007)


A man must make a terrible decision for the sake of his family in this downbeat drama.

The more I think about this film the more I love very aspect. It is a tight well scripted film where every scene holds some importance to the film as a whole.

The Son (2002)


A joinery instructor at a rehab center refuses to take a new teen as his apprentice, but then begins to follow the boy through the hallways and streets.

Again not technically a 'father and son' film. The film still covers a lot of emotional, moral and social territory.

OK, not technically a 'father and son' film. The story of a young boy left to be raised by his grand-uncles. I found the film endearing but many people found the film trite.

The Child (2005)

Father & Son (2003)


Aleksandr Sokurov's film tend to run on the 'overly artistic' side of film making. "Father & Son" is best described as visual poetry that is both abstract and tender.

OK, so this film really doesn't quite fit on the list. A rather morbid dark comedy but... it was fun to watch.

Bicycle Thieves would be a good addition. Great list.
Posted: 4 years, 10 months ago at Aug 14 3:03
I also suggest Decalogue I and The Kid.

So I suppose this is a list that focuses on father and son relationships of a positive nature?

Looking through what I've tagged as this sort of relationship, I found some I think could be of some interest though the relationships are not really positive.
Rites of Passage
Eighteen
Eighteen especially has a father son relationship that is thoroughly irreparable.

And there is this short film focusing somewhat on the father and son.

All these has a gay aspect to them, not the incestual kind of course.

Thanks, I added the first two films you mentioned but not the short film. I like to keep those on other lists.

Also updated the list so everything is pretty much ranked according to IMDB but with my fave's at the top.

Wait, have you not seen Life Is Beautiful? I didn't realize that. You should make it your unofficial 6th recommendation from me then. ;)
Posted: 4 years ago at May 30 13:45
What?? No Star Wars??

Also Kramer vs Kramer, The Godfather, Aliens (Ripley & Newt) Little Nicolas and It Runs in the Family (with Kirk, Michael & Cameron Douglas, who are grandfather, father and son in fiction as well). Just to name a few.
Posted: 4 years ago at May 30 16:15
@the giraffe Actually, "Life is Beautiful" was a Christmas gift from portlander. So, it will be watched very soon.

@ddv Thanks, I'll add those to the list shortly. I sort of remember "It Runs in the Family" but it has been some time.
