Storyline

A story that focuses on the problematic relationship between Paul Marseul, owner of a prestigious vineyard in Saint Emilion and his son, Martin, who works with him on the family estate. Paul is a demanding and passionate wine-maker but is a domineering father. He is not happy that his son may one day succeed him. He dreams of a son who is more talented, more charismatic . . . and more in line with his own aspirations. Things deteriorate as Paul's trusted manager Francois is dying of cancer. When Francois' son Philip, also in the wine business, returns from California to look after his father, Paul sees Philip as his ideal son and turns away from his own flesh and blood.

Very bad script
19 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is inept, not because of its acting, which is not top notch but because of the script: characters are unidimensional and we never know whose story it is.... The women characters, though hardly visible, at least have a like ability that the men characters lack Besides the lack of interesting characters, the story isn't interesting. It is highly predictable (no, I'm not going to tell you how it ends, but you can figure it in the first ten minutes of the film, if you are not yet discouraged. The only redeeming scenes (and probably those who explains the high grades given by reviewers and more sadly by the metascore critics) are those showing the fabrication of wine. Probably those who enjoyed the movie enjoyed wine, and that is a good excuse. To summarize, there are many better ways of spending 90 minutes of your time, one of which is to open a bottle of wine.
