Will Appeal To: Shall I say mature audience?

Just as my student tells everyone to avoid A Good Year, why won’t I be surprised?

When I was 18, I will always prefer cola more than any form of alcohol, and fine French wine was bland, bitter, or just blah to me. A Good Year is like French Wine, something to be appreciated slowly, and may disappoint many.

Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe unites after Gladiator for this movie based on Peter Mayle’s best selling novel. A British investment broker inherits a vineyard in Province from his late uncle. He discovers a new laid-back lifestyle as he leaves behind the fast life, for the fine life.

Beautiful scenery, wine, gorgeous French women and lots of money – the choice is clear. While A Good Year may not be a crowd favourite, it is a feel-good piece with music, vineyards and a inspiring painted view of life.

A Good Year – To be slowly appreciated
