    With the death of his father looming, Jean (Pio Marmaï, The First Day of the Rest of Your Life) returns to his childhood home in Burgundy after a 10-year absence. He takes over the family’s vineyard along with his siblings, Juliette (Ana Girardot, A Perfect Man, Dr. Knock) and Jérémie (François Civil, Bus Palladium). Over the course of a year, they put aside their lingering resentments about the past as they seek to maintain their father’s legacy and defy expectations of those around them. Writer-director Cédric Klapisch (The Spanish Apartment, Paris, Chinese Puzzle) perfectly captures the transfixing beauty of seasonal change across one of France’s most famous winemaking regions. A heartfelt love letter to what could be argued as France’s greatest passions, Back to Burgundy is a nuanced parable of sibling camaraderie and imploding familial tension but ultimately one that arrives at the inevitable conclusion that love is like wine... it needs time.
