Description

YOU WILL BE MY SON is  a taut psychological intergenerational drama about the troubled relationship between Paul de Marseul, the owner of a prestigious Bordeaux vineyard (Niels Arestrup), and his son. A demanding and passionate winemaker, Paul is also a domineering and manipulative father, not happy that his son, who works for him on the family estate,  may one day succeed him. Paul  dreams of a more talented and charismatic heir, more in line with his own fantasies. Things deteriorate as the health of Paul’s trusted estate manager (Patrick Chesnais) takes a turn for the worse after his own brilliant son, Philippe (Nicolas Bridet),  a winemaker as well, returns from California.  Not before long, Paul starts seeing Philippe as his ideal son and turns away from his own flesh and blood.

“A classy, full-bodied family drama. The film’s pleasures are numerous, starting with its talented cast.” Boyd van Hoeij, Variety

**** “Superb, handsomely bottled contemporary drama about a celebrated vineyard owner at war with the feeble son eager to inherit the business is ripe for tasting by demanding viewers.” – Film Journal International
