February 25, 2009
Usando o vinho como uma metáfora para a perda da individualidade no mundo moderno, Nossiter cria um filme fascinante que traz uma galeria de personagens interessantes em um relevante confronto em torno de suas visões de mundo diametralmente opostas.
| Original Score: 4/5
February 22, 2007
Overly long and literally unfocused documentary about the wine industry.
March 25, 2006
Brilliant critique of "Napa-ization" of the wine industry.
February 7, 2006
[I]nteresting, and sometimes funny, but terribly edited and way too long.

At over two hours, this gets tedious... and no amount of 'micro-oxygenating' is going to make it better. I like my wine and my documentaries with a little less pretension.

September 9, 2005
Engaging doco that touches on fraudulent practices, politics, personalities and poisonous relations in a well paced affair that covers much ground
August 18, 2005
This look at globalization through rosé-tinted glasses is a poignant, whimsical magnum opus. . . . a vital, sobering nightcap to Gleaners and I and Sideways.

Mondovino is not a movie that swirls some wine around in a glass and admires the color and praises the bouquet and speaks of the wine's 'complexity' and uses the whole experience as some kind of rarefied metaphor for middle-aged angst.

the repetitious, belaboring 165 minutes make you want to scream, "Put a cork in it!"
| Original Score: 2/5
July 8, 2005
The movie runs an exhausting 131 minutes and reveals nothing that couldn't better be expressed with a 10-page story in Vanity Fair.

At the core of this film is a great story and plenty of wine lessons worth learning -- even for heathen palates.

Nossiter makes the evolving wine business into a pointed metaphor for the entire globalized economy, and the opportunities and hazards that come with it.

At more than two hours, both Nossiter and the film go on too long, like a drunken party guest who doesn't know when to leave.

Mondovino is rich and deep, with flavors and textures that reveal themselves from start to finish. Like the wines it celebrates, this is a movie to be savored.

It's so complex that it's hard to figure out exactly what he's trying to say, but it goes down pretty well.

Only a true wine connoisseur will be able to get all it has to offer; but as a microcosm of the larger dangers of globalization it may appeal to a wider audience.

An insightful, informative cinematic wine tasting, though it's overly long at 131 minutes.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
June 10, 2005
Trouble is, it sits in the glass a bit too long -- 2 hours, 11 minutes -- and while it never quite turns to vinegar, it becomes less than compelling in its tedious repetition.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
June 9, 2005
You may need a glass or two of burgundy to get through Nossiter's potent but plodding critique.
June 3, 2005
For wine-loving filmgoers willing to lavish it, and to forgive the film its excesses, it offers refreshment and reward.
