Marked by an uncommon sense of nuance and emotional restraint, Back to Burgundy is a sumptuously-filmed parable of sibling camaraderie and imploding familial ties. This gorgeous French family saga begins as winemaker Jean (Pio Marmaï) returns to his childhood home in Burgundy after his father falls ill. Along with his estranged siblings Juliette (Ana Girardot) and Jérémie (François Civil), Jean is tasked with taking over the family’s vineyard. The trio must learn to put aside their lingering resentments as they seek to defy expectations and maintain their father’s legacy in this heartfelt love letter to two of France’s greatest passions – ‘cinéma et vin’. Filmed over the course of a full year so as to capture the delicate transition of the seasons, this beautiful film develops in its rich complexity as time goes by.
