With the death of his father looming, Jean (Pio Marmaï) returns from his Australian winery to his childhood 'domaine' in Burgundy after a 10-year absence—and just before the grape harvest. He takes over the family’s vineyard along with his siblings Juliette (Ana Girardot) and Jérémie (François Civil). 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.
Beautifully filmed amidst the seasons and terroir of one of France’s most famous winemaking regions, BACK TO BURGUNDY is a parable of sibling camaraderie and imploding familial tension, and one that arrives at the inevitable conclusion that love, like wine, needs time.
“...A film so rich and pleasurable you’d be forgiven if you thought about it each time you have a glass of red.” —G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle
