France | 2010 | col | dir. Gilles Legrand, with Niels Arestrup, Lorànt Deutsch, Patrick Chesnais | UK premiere

An unexpected hit of the harvest season in France, Gilles Legrand has produced a vintage and full-bodied drama with a lingering after-taste. Paul de Marseul (Niels Arestrup, A Prophet) is a distinguished vintner in the St-Emilion region. He’s deeply attached to his vineyard and, now that he is ageing, is obsessed with passing it all down to posterity. Normally that should be his son, Martin (Lorànt Deutsch). The problem is that Paul has no confidence in Martin; he seems barely able to stand him at all…

A free glass of Closerie de Fourtet wine (the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru vineyard featured in the film) will be offered with every ticket during the opening weekend, courtesy of Clos Fourtet (while stocks last)
