Alliance Française French Film Festival 2018 presents

Closing this year’s Alliance Française French Film Festival is the latest film by award-winning director and screenwriter Cédric Klapisch (My Piece of the Pie, The Spanish Apartment, Call My Agent). Back To Burgundy perfectly captures the transfixing beauty of seasonal change across one of France’s most famous wine making regions.

With the death of his father looming, Jean (Pio Marmaï, A Happy Event) returns from his Australian winery to his childhood ‘domaine’ in Burgundy after a 10-year absence. He takes over the family’s vineyard along with his siblings Juliette (Ana Girardot, A Perfect Man) and Jérémie (François Civil, Call My Agent). Over the course of a year, Jean, Juliette and Jérémie put aside their lingering resentments about the past as they seek to maintain their father’s legacy and defy expectations – financial, emotional and professional – of those around them.

A heartfelt love letter to what could be argued are France’s greatest passions – ‘cinéma et vin’ – Back to Burgundy is a nuanced parable of sibling camaraderie and imploding familial tension but ultimately one that arrives at the inevitable conclusion that love is like wine… it needs time.

“It’s the kind of movie you’ll want to slather on a baguette and pop into your mouth.” – The Times
