Having little previous experience in the wine-making process, he gambles on using traditional methods that went in disuse with the introduction of technology.Written by
First, I know nothing at all concerning vineyards, grapefruit and wine. Nothing at all. But this movies explains you many things about it. The characterization, acting, is superb with the likes of Gerard Lanvin, Jalil Lespert and Alice Taglioni. It's a sort of soap opera that could have easily been made in a mini series for a TV channel in prime time. Speaking of this, this family tale is produced, ordered by the TF1 garbage, crap channel. And when you see some lines of this interesting film, you understand why it stinks TF1 at one mile ahead...And when you realize this, I think it annihilates the power of this movie, as could be a storm or a huge rain on a vineyard just before the harvest. The story looks like another french feature starring Niels Aestrup shot in 2011 and that also took place in the vineyards: TU SERAS MON FILS, something like that.
