The Vintner’s Luck

January 26th, 2010

Can’t wait to see the new film by ‘Whale Rider’ director Niki Caro. Based on the fantastic book The Vintner’s Luck it is a story about balance, questions, struggles, ambition and life. From the film’s blog: “A story that has hit a chord with the Dalai Lama Visit Trust New Zealand.

This is a powerful, meditative tale of Sobran Jodeau, an ambitious young peasant winemaker and the three loves of his life – his earthy wife Celeste, the proudly intellectual baroness Aurora de Valday and Xas, a plain spoken angel who strikes up an unlikely but enduring friendship. Under his guidance Sobran must wrestle with the constant duality of life; from success to failure, love to hate, betrayal to belief – all in pursuit of the perfect vintage.”

See the blog for interesting discussion about the film’s themes including discussions on duality and Buddhism.

  1. I can’t wait to see the film myself. 2009 was a rather lackluster year film wise in my book. Either that or I just didn’t have knowledge of the exciting films out there. I am ready for some thought provoking, challenging, meditative films in the United States. Bring The Vintner’s Luck on! Please!!!!
