Back to Burgundy

Pio Marmaï (The First Day of the Rest of Your Life), Ana Girardot (Escobar: Paradise Lost) and François Civil (As Above, So Below) are siblings reunited in this drama from celebrated French filmmaker Cédric Klapisch (Russian Dolls).

After 10 years spent abroad, Jean (Marmaï) returns to the family vineyard in his native Burgundy to attend to his ailing father. Shortly before the annual harvest, Jean's father passes away, leaving him and his brother and sister (Civil and Girardot) to reconnect and preserve the family business.

As rich and earthy as a fine French wine, Cédric Klapisch’s Burgundy-set family drama draws character from the soil on which it's set.

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.

Mr. Klapisch lingers his camera lovingly over shots of grapes being harvested and stomped, all the while employing story mechanics and flashbacks indelicate enough to suggest the churn of a factory juicer.

A rather sentimental, soft-edged film.

Warm without sacrificing integrity, pleasant but not to a fault, "Back to Burgundy" is satisfying rather than earth-shaking.
