BACK TO BUR­GUNDY

OUT 1 SEPTEM­BER

Total Film - - Big Screen -

With his fa­ther dy­ing, prodi­gal son Jean (Pio Mar­maï) re­turns to his fam­ily’s vine­yard for an awk­ward re­union. Cé­dric Klapisch’s drama, co-writ­ten by a vint­ner, is an au­then­tic love let­ter to the wine busi­ness, but as drama it lacks the sub­tlety of a vin­tage. It’s more of a ta­ble wine – in­of­fen­sive, mid­dle­brow and, like the scenes of grape har­vest­ing here, hard work. Si­mon Kin­n­ear
