The story and moral of Lift: An Ode to Love & Ski Jumping is amazing! I like that it takes us back to sports in the 6's and 70s. I also like the graphics which look like an old black and while movie.

This film is about a ski jumping athlete narrating his journey and the support his father and mother offered him during his years of ski jumping. The film is presented as an old black and white movie with music reminiscent of old movies too. The message the narrator wants to highlight is to honor your parents because they are your support system for anything you choose in life.

I like how the narrator tells the audience to love your parents because they are your support when it comes to sports. I like that he tells his parents' story and how they support him in ski jumping. The scenes are a mix of old sport films, home family films and ski jumping films. The locations are incredible ski jumping locations. The instrumental music reminds me of music used for old movies. The key influencers here are the narrator and his parents. When you watch this you take note that this sport is very intense and kind of dangerous. It is interesting to learn more about this sport, which is not as easy as it looks. I particularly enjoyed listening to the narrator explain the body position when ski jumping.

The message of this film is about honoring your father and your mother. Be aware that it does show kids doing risky things that kids might imitate.

I give this film 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 6 to 18, plus adults. Reviewed by Ethan P., KIDS FIRST!

An homage to those who emboldened him with courage and grit, an international ski jump judge reflects on 50 years in competitive sports In 1970, if you lived in New England, you thought about the Boston Bruins and Orr. All the time. Unless you were Mark Levasseur, a 10-year-old gifted athlete from Worcester, MA. Mark was laser focused on emulating his father's esteemed ski jumping record and becoming the next Bobby Orr. LIFT: An Ode to Love recounts Levasseur's fifty-year journey in competitive sports. The short film is realized via archival footage, action-packed hockey and ski jumping, and a compelling interview. Levasseur pays tribute to the man and the sports community he credits with emboldening him with courage, compassion and grit.
