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

  • An interesting companion piece to the first film.

  • The film works because, even though the focus is on wine, you know that the issue being explored is universal and could likely be affixed to the production world of any foodstuff you care to name.

  • 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 ...
