“An engaging family drama.” The Guardian

Synopsis

After ten years away from his home and family, Jean returns to Burgundy upon hearing of his father’s ailing health. Plunged once again into the midst of the family he left, Jean must reconnect with his brother Jérémie and sister Juliette, as they attempt to both save the family vineyard and rebuild the tenuous links of familial love and trust in the wake of their father’s death.

Director Cédric Klapisch is well known for popular films such as The Spanish Apartment trilogy (2001 – 2012) or Paris (2007), all big city films. Here he has for the first time made a film set in nature. Over the period of a year, the film captures the beauty of the cycle of the seasons in pure and simple images.

Klapisch manages an authentic and well-researched insight into the world of winemaking —Jean-Marc Roulot, real-life winemaker who plays Marcel in the film, worked as adviser on the script. The symbolism of the wine-making tradition and the time and seasons of wine maturing are beautifully used as the context for this family drama where three young adults rediscover their fraternal relationship.

Set against the splendid and picturesque background of the Bourgogne region, a wine-making region traditionally known for smaller family-run vineyards, Back to Burgundy is both a visual feast and a satisfying, emotional journey musing on the strength and value of family ties.
