Compelling look at the dedication needed to pass one of the hardest exams in the world. Each of the candidates featured in the movie had interesting personality quirks that kept my interest... I found myself rooting for all of them, knowing the odds were against them.
This documentary will likely appeal to wine lovers, but perhaps also those who are curious about wine or appreciate obsessions.

Although not about an exam, the sushi documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi had a similar feel.
The constant background music during dialogue/ emotional high points was very distracting, enough to dock it a point or two.
