  • Somm also provides the sort of general interest that comes from watching anyone involved in an endeavor that requires dedication, discipline and a touch of craziness.

  • Engaging doc isn't just for wine nerds.

  • "Somm," an inside look at wine stewards, attempts to unveil the secrecy of the master sommelier exam, and though the results aren't always vintage, there is some pleasant tasting to be had here.

  • By the end, despite the surface-y quality of the treatment, you're caught up in the suspense, the horse-race aspect of a very particular pursuit of knowledge and excellence.

    June 21, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • [It's] a Herculean feat that all but requires advanced degrees in wine theory, history, geography, service and, most crucially, tasting, all of which director Jason Wise examines in crisp, quaffable if overlong fashion.

  • "Somm" does a fairly impressive job of making wine tasting somewhat cinematic despite its being essentially unfilmable, at least until taste-o-vision comes along.

Audience Reviews for SOMM

  • May 26, 2016
    An expertly-edited, compelling and even tense documentary that gets us deeply invested as we follow the obsessive dedication of four admirable candidates who have each a personality of his own and whom we root for as they bust a gut to pass a monstrous, nearly-impossible exam.
