Only one way for him: death. But a young Japanese woman, coming specially to taste his wine, will gently bring him to mourn the death of his wife by a series of symbols and exchanges between two cultures. A moving portrayal by French actor/winemaker Gérard Depardieu put this film at the top of our favorites.
