Jean (Pio Marmaï) left his family and his native Burgundy 10 years ago to tour the world, but when he learns of his father’s imminent death, the wanderer returns to his childhood home. With his siblings Juliette (Ana Girardot) and Jérémie (François Civil), Jean inherits the struggling family vineyard, and as the seasons turn, they must learn to trust each other again and reinvent their relationship. The latest from Cédric Klapisch — the filmmaker of “When the Cat’s Away,” the multi-character drama “Paris,” and the “Spanish Apartment” trilogy (“L’Auberge espagnole,” “Russian Dolls,” and “Chinese Puzzle”) — “Back to Burgundy” will delight longtime fans of the director’s work and earn new admirers. As the Hollywood Reporter notes, Klapisch’s films feature “sprawling casts, intersecting storylines and a strong sense of place (or places),” and their characters “are flecked with drawn-from-life humor as well as a sincere form of light pathos that feels earned.” The trade journal concludes: “‘Back to Burgundy’ is similar to those titles in many respects, with the story set in and around the family winery over the course of roughly four seasons and two harvests, with the gorgeous landscapes showcased in everything from time-lapse photography to overhead shots, drone footage and seasonal side-by-side split-screen.”
