We had an opportunity to attend a special screening of the film... The film was announced as a touching and delicate story about family ties, growing up, returning to the roots, wine and love located in the beautiful landscapes and vineyards of Burgundy. Jean is a thirty-year-old who travelled the world for a decade, breaking all ties with his family and with Burgundy, the region where he grew up. Now that he has settled in Australia, he gets a call to return to his native France to be with his father who is dying of an incurable disease. It's the end of summer and upcoming grape harvest gives Jean an opportunity to restore family ties with his sister Juliette and brother Jeremie and agree about the future of family vineyards. Over the course of year, following the rhythm of seasons and the winemaking process, two brothers and a sister slowly renew their relationship, bound up with sincere and lifelong passion for wine.
All the films dealing with the topic of vineyards contain a bunch of general places: love for the country, change of seasons, family tradition, etc. This film does not avoid those clichés, but it further builds on the theme of making important life decisions. If we speak wine jargon: from initial softness and elegance, the film evolves toward the finish and brings a layer of grippy tannins accompanied with a hint of sweetness. It's not Grand Cru, but it certainly won't disappoint those who watch it. In particular, winelovers will not remain indifferent to the brilliant views of the vineyards throughout the seasons.
And if you are a fan of Burgundy, then you have to watch the movie. You will immediately recognize landscapes and vineyard scenes: it is Côte de Beaune. Interestingly, the whole film was filmed in an authentic winery. For a year, film director Cédric Klapisch visited a vineyard in Meursault and another one in Pommard at the same hour each week to capture images of a tree surrounded by vineyards. In this way, he recorded changes that take place in the vineyard in the course of a year, which were subsequently used in the film.
When the idea to make a wine-related film was born, Cédric Klapisch asked winemaker acquaintances if he could shoot the film at their estate. So he approached his friend, Jean-Marc Roulot who delightedly accepted the offer. Therefore, throughout the film you can see vineyards owned by Domaine Roulot winery that owns 15 hectares of vineyards (Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Aligoté). As one can notice in the film, the winery produces grapes in accordance with principles of biodynamics. In the film, you will also hear names of single plots owned by this winery: Perrieres (Le Meursault 1er Cru), Bouchères, Tillets, Tessons.If we have tickled your fancy, we must warn you that wines from this winery are in great demand on the market so the winery is not able to accept orders from new customers. But that's why you have time to go to the cinema these days and enjoy the scenery of Burgundy and a family story that will put a smile on your face. And after the film, grab a glass of wine.
