You Will Be My Son (M) (97 min)
Directed by Gilles Legrand. Starring Niels Arestrup, Lorant Deutsch.
You Will Be My Son is a deft and intelligently written tale of fathers and sons, played out in the wine making regions of France.
Great myths are invoked, and a couple of France's elder statesmen actors do work to be remembered by.
This is a solid film, well worth seeking out.
It also made me raise my sights a few notches in the wine shop on the way home. Recommended.
