A Good Year

www.amazon.com/s/?ur..
Category: Entertainment
After years of no contact with his Uncle Henry, London banker and bond trader Max Skinner learns that Henry has died intestate, so Max inherits a château and vineyard in Provence. Max spent part of his childhood there, learning maxims and how to win and lose, and honing his killer instinct (at chess, which serves him well in finance). Max goes to France intent on selling the property. He spends a few days there, getting the property ready to show. Memories, a beautiful woman, and a young American who says she's Henry's illegitimate daughter interrupt his plans. Did Max the boy know things that Max the man has forgotten?

A Good Effort
A high profile bond trader from London (Russell Crowe) is caught between his busy life as a trader and life at a chateau/vineyard (filled with childhood memories) in France. The entire movie is portrayed in a light-hearted way with a good helping of French language (with subtitles, although this does not detract from the movie), culture, music, romance and wine. Crowe does well as the lead and it makes for a very enjoyable movie.

(One or two scenes in London with screens, quotes etc and the traders in Crowe's business but much of the movie is set in France).

A good year is a good film
As it's title may imply, "A Good Year" is just that: a good film by Ridley Scott. It's tone reminded me of Scott's Matchstick Men and it's premise is similar to Under the Tuscan Sun. Nonetheless, despite the similarities, Scott managed to create something new and different in this movie, muchly thanks to it's rich plot, vivid characters and breathtaking landscape, that build up an enchanting European atmosphere that allows you to wander off to France for some enjoyable 118 minutes.

Good movie
You can do worse than seeing a movie with gorgeous scenery, a predictable plot and sweet characters.
