Cast & Crew
There are some pretty funny things in there.
A Good Year is like a promising wine that's a bit new to the bottle. It goes down rough, but there's this marvelous aftertaste on the palate.
A Good Year may not be vintage stuff, but it goes down fairly smoothly.
A Good Year is never less than visually ravishing, its warm, inviting vistas of the French countryside and its unhurried, pleasant vibe putting the viewer in the same frame of mind as Max.
A Good Year builds so much fairy-tale contrivance with such boisterous high spirits that it's exhausting to keep feeling good about feeling good.
A Good Year is a chance for Crowe and his Gladiator director Ridley Scott to slow down and appreciate the good things, like beautiful women, good wine and a country home in France.
A pleasant jaunt through one of the most beautiful places on the planet -- encased in a story that ends up making you feel that all is right with the world.
