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.

No, but I plan to pick up a copy now.
