SIFF Film Center | French Truly Salon
Gilles LeGrand's drama examines the contentious relationship between the demanding proprieter of a prestigious family wine estate and his work-shy son. The film is preceded by a presentation by Virginie Paradis of French Truly which will take viewers on a virtual tour of three French wine regions. 

Paul de Marseul (Niels Arestrup) is the passionate, demanding proprietor of his prestigious family wine estate. But he has no faith in his son, Martin (Lorànt Deutsch), who works at the vineyard. Paul dreams of a harder-working, successful son-a dream that one day seemingly materializes when he meets Philippe (Nicolas Bridet), the son of his dying estate manager (Patrick Chesnais). Can Paul turn against his own blood and turn Philippe into the rightful heir of his family estate?
