Movie Info

Three siblings reunite at their home in picturesque Burgundy to save the family vineyard in this tender tale of a new generation finding its own unique blend from acclaimed director Cédric Klapisch (L'Auberge Espagnole). Jean (Pio Marmaï), the black sheep of the family, unexpectedly returns home from a decade abroad to reconnect with his hospitalized father. He's welcomed by his strong-willed sister, Juliette (Ana Girardot), who took over the reins of the vineyard after their father fell ill, and Jeremie (François Civil), the youngest of the three who has recently married into one of the region's more prestigious wine families. Their father passes shortly after Jean's return, leaving them with the estate and a looming inheritance tax of half a million dollars. As four seasons and two harvests go by, Jean, Juliette, and Jeremie have to learn to reinvent their relationship and trust in each other as they work to preserve the land that ties them together.

It's all quite captivating, especially for wine lovers - and there's a narrative as well.

Images of the fecund countryside or the siblings stomping grapes together may be enough to besot the senses, but beware the murky residue that can cloud the mind.

There is a lot to admire here. Take your time and drink it in.

March 30, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Warm without sacrificing integrity, pleasant but not to a fault, "Back to Burgundy" is satisfying rather than earth-shaking.

March 29, 2018 | Full Review…

As far as winemaking is concerned, Back to Burgundy is rich in vistas of the fabled côtes; stuffed with oenophile info... and studded with casual tastings of wines that most of us can only dream of.

Audience Reviews for Back to Burgundy (Ce qui nous lie)

A passable little film that may be a bit too long, repetitive and even predictable, not offering much that we haven't seen before in superior family dramas, but is at least charming with some funny moments and good performances that make it worth watching.
