A PO­LITE BOUT OF CHATEAU BOXING, AUS­TRALIA, 80 MIN

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - MOVIES -

A the­mat­i­cally slight doc­u­men­tary in­ves­ti­gat­ing the rapidly chang­ing land­scape of the world­wide wine busi­ness. It is not the most sat­is­fy­ing drop to be poured in Aus­tralian cinemas this year. Though there is much in­trigu­ing in­for­ma­tion for view­ers to drink in, the flavour of Red Ob­ses­sion’s find­ings will only be ap­pre­ci­ated by se­lect palates. An ini­tial fo­cus on the boom times in France’s cel­e­brated Bordeaux re­gion – where some vin­tages have bro­ken the 1000-euro-per-bot­tle mark – is mildly in­ter­est­ing. Later em­pha­sis on China putting the squeeze on the global grape lacks a valid point worth car­ing about. Nar­rated by Rus­sell Crowe.
