Storyline

!800s, Napoleonic era. Sobran Jodeau (Jérémie Renier) is an ambitious young peasant winemaker. He has three loves of his life - his beautiful wife Celeste (Keisha Castle-Hughes), the proudly intellectual baroness Aurora de Valday (Vera Farmiga) and Xas (Gaspard Ulliel), a male angel who strikes up one day each year but enduring friendship that borders on eroticism with him. Under Xas' guidance, Sobran is forced to fathom the nature of love and belief and in the process grapples with the sensual, the sacred and the profane - in pursuit of the perfect vintage.

Legendary Show!
16 March 2014 | by crystalmengcSee all my reviews

This is such a beautiful show about the relationship of man and angle. The friendship and conflict between them is so well filmed that it's almost legendary! The idea of a human's life from young to death, all is shown. I strongly suggest everyone to watch this beautiful show, you learn so much from it! I was laughing and crying with them, all of those emotions all came so strongly and powerfully. I had watch this movie at least 3 times now and the emotions still won't easy it self. The angle in this movie is so different from all the other ones I had watch, he seems so lonely! And OMG the wine maker! Sometime I want to knock him in the head ( don't ask me why)! But above all. Bless all who made this move!
