After years of no contact with his Uncle Henry, London banker and bond trader Max Skinner learns that Henry has died intestate, so Max inherits a château and vineyard in Provence. Max spent part of his childhood there, learning maxims and how to win and lose, and honing his killer instinct (at chess, which serves him well in finance). Max goes to France intent on selling the property. He spends a few days there, getting the property ready to show. Memories, a beautiful woman, and a young American who says she's Henry's illegitimate daughter interrupt his plans. Did Max the boy know things that Max the man has forgotten?

A great feel good movie

I will start by saying how much I enjoyed this movie. It's escapism, picturesque, fun and really enjoyable.

I do not understand the negative reviews, yes it's cliched, and overly romantic in parts, but not every movie has to be believable. Having travelled to France regularly, I can vouch for the fact that the movie captures the French mentality nicely and the cinematography is just beautiful. It's two hours of unwinding with a good glass of wine to a beautifully made feel good movie with a fantastic soundtrack. People shouldn't take themselves too seriously when reviewing a movie, just sit back and take in the experience. Really sweet movie.

Movie Review: "A Good Year" (2006)

This make-you-feel-good movie directed and produced by Ridley Scott is a very personal signature of the director, who recalls childhood memories with teenage character of Young Max, performed by at that time promising newcomer actor Freddie Highmore, known for "Finding Neverland" starring Johnny Depp; the boy, who gets raised in cultural manners by his Uncle Henry, here portrayed in a perfect-pitching performance by Albert Finney, at age 70, in manners of living-well without dying from life's obligation and constant pressure, when actor Russell Crowe takes over the stage to be London's stock-markets-pushing star broker number one Max Skinner, when his Uncle's inheritance becomes due in shape of the childhood reminiscence of a rural estate of planting grapes of French red wine.

Director Ridley Scott plays his cards after the mammut-production of "Kingdom of Heaven" (2005) with switching cinematography to Philippe Le Sourd, engaging vacation-indulging, dreamy visuals of further high-end digital color corrections; promoted production designer Sonja Klaus, organizing and dressing on-location sets of splendor towards sharing a life of leisure with any spectator by finding the professionally acted, nevertheless no high-pitch meeting collaboration between Russell Crowe and actress Marion Cotillard, given face to a local character as waitress-of-no-means, when "A Good Year" runs out after a suspenseless 110-Minutes-Cut by editor Dody Dorn, where even accelerated montage scene deny the audience a fever pitch of higher illuminations in this motion picture of tragic-comedy pleasures.

I was convinced this will be the next movie which I’ll see using my boxxy software. It’s to hard to determined what to watch when you have all movies and all serials for free just using boxxy software
