BAFTA Award-winning French filmmaker Gilles Legrand’s (Ridicule, The Maiden and the Wolves) latest drama You Will Be My Son (Tu seras mon fils) arrives on DVD here in the UK on Monday April 29th, and to celebrate we have two copies of the film to give away to our readers courtesy of those lovely people at Verve Pictures.
Read on for a synopsis and details of how to enter the competition…
You Will Be My Son stars Niels Arestrup as Paul de Marseul, a prestigious wine-maker and owner of a renowned chateau and vineyard in Saint-Emilion, whom is disheartened by the notion of his son Martin (Lorant Deutsch) taking over the family business. Martin does not seem to have inherited the qualities that Paul esteems in a wine-maker: persistence, creative insight and technical prowess matched with passion for the job and the product, and Paul frequently reminds him of this, whether explicitly or in subtle gestures. When Philippe (Nicolas Bridet) appears at the vineyard, Paul leaps at the chance to name him as his successor, neglecting the wishes of his own son. The tension in this familial triangle comes to a head when an unexpected event changes everything.
