The reasons this movie caught my attention...
1. Marion Cotillard
2. Russell Crowe
3. Ridley Scott
I agree with most of the critics, it obviously wasn't Ridley's best work but I enjoyed this film because 2 of my favorite actors finally were paired together and Crowe's character was living the life I wish I had... lol.

Marion Cotillard is always a dream to watch. Great photography too.

You can see this film working very hard to try and figure out how to set the correct tone and find make the stylistic elements fit together in the right way, and that is the problem. But, that said, it is not without its charming moments, despite what seems like a rushed ending.

Boring but crow is still one of the best actors ever

This was pretty good, a bit of a departure for Russell Crowe and Ridley Scott as its a "charming romantic comedy" but it works. Crowe plays a London Investment banker who inherits a vineyard in France and finds his life changing for the better as he goes about the process of selling it and falling in love. Not a terribly unique story and I didn't care too much for R.C in the rom-com role, some of his scenes felt forced (the pool, driving the mini car) but it's still enjoyable, well made, amusing and has nice scenery. I did like Albert Finny and Freddie Highmore in the flashback scenes and the vineyard estate is gorgeous. A nice escape with little thought needed. Reminded me of Under A Tuscan Sun w Dianne Lane. 6/18/14

Loved this movie. I loved the characters, I loved the story, and the acting, and the directing was superb.

It's sappy for sure, and yet, Scott's little French adventure is still likeable. Simple ethics, gorgeous vistas and a generally sunny and warm tone lead to a good taste, though its fluff prevents it from being a true vintage dramedy.

Least likeable rom com protagonist I've ever seen.

Entertaining light hearted movie. Story maybe a bit light times and could've done with some better editing. Overall an ok watch.

This movie was at it's best when it was delving into the main characters past.

It's not exactly a film one would expect from Ridley Scott, but A Good Year overcomes its occasional ventures into treacle with good performances, warm humor, and a well-written script.

Fantastic film. I admit I'm biased because I love the dynamic duo from Gladiator (actor & director) and that I loved the investment banker/vineyard memories storyline. I think it's a classic, only because I had a taste for it. I could easily see why others may not think it a very progressive story and consequently an empty film, but I still liked it.
½ April 12, 2014
Definitely not a movie you would expect with Russell Crowe and Ridley Scott, quite odd, but I liked it a lot.
