Araluen Arthouse Cinema: You Will Be My Son

(France) Rated M, English Subtitles, Running Time: 102 mins

Paul de Marseul, a prestigious wine-maker and owner of a renowned chateau and vineyard in Saint-Emilion, who is disheartened by the notion of his son Martin taking over the family business. Martin does not seem to have inherited the qualities that Paul esteems in a wine-maker. When Philippe appears at the vineyard, Paul leaps at the chance to name him as his successor, neglecting the wishes of his own son. The tension in this familial triangle comes to a head when an unexpected event changes everything. Like a fine wine, this drama is full-bodied, and complex and provides a fascinating look at the matter of the transmission of knowledge, heritage and tradition in the world of wine.
