Every year, Bruno does the wine trail… without setting foot outside the Paris Agricultural Show! But this year, his father Jean, who has come to present his champion bull in the hope of winning the competition, suddenly decides to take Bruno on a real wine trail, in a bid to become closer to his son. They raise their glasses in Saint-Amour accompanied by Mike, a young taxi driver unexpectedly taken along for the ride. First-rate wine, romantic entanglements, picturesque surroundings, and the warmth of family combine to make this the road trip of a lifetime.
The partnership of Benoît Delépine and Gustave Kervern creates a comedy gem in Saint Amour, with an all-star cast adding to the magic. Gérard Dépardieu delivers a characteristically well-rounded and fine-tuned performance as Jean, while Benoît Poelvoorde (The Brand New Testament – Festival 2016) mines comedic gold as his awkward son, who nevertheless has a huge capacity for love. Vincent Lacoste (also in In Bed with Victoria) is a treat as their unwitting chauffeur, Mike. A ‘Tour de France’ of a different type, this film expands a simple wine tour into an emotional journey, as our characters learn about love, and the importance of family.
