St Amour: a tasty tale of love and wine

St Amour: a tasty tale of love and wine
By Euronews

<p>This week’s film is ‘Saint-Amour’, a road movie that pays homage to wine, women, sex and the love between a father and a son. </p> <p>Bruno is a farmer whose only holiday is a week spent at Paris’ annual Agriculture Show. There, he travels along the famous ‘Wine Route’ around France’s vineyards without even leaving the showroom – a virtual journey down an alcoholic road that belies a deep sense of loneliness. </p> <p>His father, who has gone along with him to the showroom, decides to save him and takes him on a trip down the real Wine Route. Together with a taxi driver, they set off on a visit of France’s vineyards and embark on a redemptive and truthful journey. </p> <p>Directed by Gustave de Kerven and Benoît Delépine, the film stars Benoît Poelvoorde as the son and Gérard Depardieu as the father. Depardieu, contrary to expectations, doesn’t play a caricature of himself but instead honours his character, as does his co-star, Poelvoorde. </p> <p>The result is a wonderfully light-hearted film, as enjoyable as a good bottle of wine. I hope you enjoy it , have a good week. </p> <p><img src="http://www.euronews.com/media/download/articlepix/saint-amour-cb51-bb-110316.jpg" alt="" /></p>
