For Bruno, the agricultural show in Paris marks the high point of his year, which means tasting France’s finest wines and enjoying himself to the fullest. His father Jean, however, has a different aim in mind: to win a prestigious prize with his pedigree bull. Bruno has had enough of farm work and wants to get out of the family business. But Jean loves his son, so he decides to take him on a real vineyard tour through the French countryside. The seventh collaboration of this successful filmmaking duo, whose pictures are regularly screened at prestigious film festivals, provides a sensitive, funny look at a father-son relationship. Connoisseurs should be on the lookout for a cameo by noted author and philosopher Michel Houellebecq. (source: Art Film Fest)
