Tu Seras Mon Fils review

Niels Arestrup ( A Prophet ) plays an arrogant winemaker, proud owner of a St-Emilion château, who despises his son as a talentless weakling.

Instead he starts to groom the son of his estate manager, newly returned from California, to succeed him.

Writer/director Gilles Legrand’s study of fraught father/son relationships builds the tension, helped by a fine cast – especially Lorànt Deutsch as the put-upon son, his face registering every slight – while the vineyards of Bordeaux offer a deceptively serene backdrop.

The only downside is Armand Amar’s over-explicit score, underlining every dramatic moment.
