With his father critically ill, estranged son Jean returns to the family vineyard after many years away leaving behind his girlfriend and small son in Australia.
In Burgundy he finds his sister Juliette and younger brother Jeremie running the winery. When their father dies they are faced with a a huge inheritance tax and the choice between selling the business or trying to make a go of it.
This is a gentle and charming film about sibling relationships filmed in the extraordinarily beautiful Burgundy countryside. Lovers of the romance of wine will find it particularly appealing.
Back to Burgundy is just one of the fabulous films on show in Australia’s 2018 Alliance French Film Festival. Check out all the films here: https://www.affrenchfilmfestival.org – we really enjoyed the film and the ambiance of Cinema Paradiso.
