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.

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (4)

A film so rich and pleasurable you'd be forgiven if you thought about it each time you have a glass of red.

March 23, 2018 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

When the film focuses on the wine-making process, in the progression from vine to bottle, it's a fascinating and detailed look at a very specific subculture.

March 23, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Mr. Klapisch lingers his camera lovingly over shots of grapes being harvested and stomped, all the while employing story mechanics and flashbacks indelicate enough to suggest the churn of a factory juicer.

Viewers may need a drink once they realize how fully Jean and his family members are defined by shopworn tropes.

March 21, 2018 | Full Review…

It all looks magnifique, thanks to [Cédric] Klapisch's stylish élan and Alexis Kavyrchine's sun-dappled cinematography, which just revels in the Burgundy landscape.

March 23, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Satisfying, eye-pleasing French drama about three thirty-something siblings forced by circumstance to reunite on the family's wine-producing homestead to decide its fate.

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.
