Saw this the other night. A very uneven but rather charming story. They tried to preserve some sort of love triangle and family drama story within the context of the wine story, but everything took the backseat to how much the wine meant to everyone in the region and story itself.

Cinematography wise, there were some really great heli shots all throughout. Must have been a HUGE chunk of the budget to get those, but they were the most impressive bits of the film. The nightscenes weren't too impressive though, and it appeared sometimes as if Mr. Ozier perhaps didn't quite have the size of lighting package he really needed, considering the scope of certain exterior scenes.

Some strange reflector board usage at times as well. Unnatural hotspots on the facades of buildings and some really distracting shots where an actor is obviously being followed with a board. But otherwise I thought there was some sharp work, while some compromises were most likely made for both time and space.
