It is not as bad as it sounds… We wrote some time ago about the role of wine in French films. We asked our readers for recommendations of “wine movies” and one of our readers took us up on that. She recommends a film she watched a few months ago called “Ce qui nous lie”. The somewhat bland English title is “Back to Burgundy”.
Our reader’s review of the film: “A nice, low-key movie about a French family with three children who, after the father’s death, inherit his vineyard. There are complications, of course, between the siblings, but with a positive ending. I enjoyed the film and its atmosphere.”
The film is made by director Cédric Klapisch with Pio Marmai, Ana Girardot, François Civil, Jean-Marc Roulot, and María Valverde. It is, of course, filmed on site in Burgundy. Real wine growers have helped the actors to look and speak the part. Thanks for the recommendation. Below you can see the trailer “Back to Burgundy” (with English subtitles). And even if it is fiction there is probably quite a lot of similarities with reality.
