Movie Info

Ten years after his acclaimed winemaking documentary Mondovino, Nossiter's new film looks at the Italian vanguard of a rapidly spreading European natural wine revolution-from a couple growing grains and fruit that harken back to the ancient Etruscans, to farmer-poet Stefano Bellotti, the Pasolini of Italian agriculture, whose radical farm in the Piedmont upends the established rules of agriculture. Official selection: Toronto International Film Festival (C) IFC Films

Critic Reviews for Natural Resistance

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

Nossiter luxuriates in his film's casual construction, as unkempt and unruly as the old vines on the hillsides.

Mr. Nossiter's main point is that traditional farming methods have become revolutionary in a country that, we're told, has grown progressively less agrarian. Mr. Nossiter champions that activism in this mellow, unfocused film.

Intense bursts of information highlight the emptiness of some of the more poetic rhetoric in the mix.

Charming if scattershot ...

By focusing on these winegrowers, Nossiter is able to make familiar but still relevant points about globalisation and the potentially disastrous consequences of industrial farming techniques.

An interesting companion piece to the first film.
