3.0 out of 5 stars the cinematography is excellent, with plenty of rich
This documentary about the world of Bordeaux wine could have been a winner, as it's a rich subject with many different angles to explore, but the end product is a bit insipid. On the plus side, the cinematography is excellent, with plenty of rich, sweeping shots of the Bordeaux region and its vineyards. However, there are some fundamental flaws here, starting with the...

This review is from: Red Obsession [DVD] [2013] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This documentary about the world of Bordeaux wine could have been a winner, as it's a rich subject with many different angles to explore, but the end product is a bit insipid. On the plus side, the cinematography is excellent, with plenty of rich, sweeping shots of the Bordeaux region and its vineyards. However, there are some fundamental flaws here, starting with the mystifying decision to have the narration done by Russell Crowe - yes, here's a documentary about fine wine narrated by an Australian yob who keeps mispronouncing basic French. The story is also lacking: the focus is on the hype around the key vintages and the prospects of the new Chinese market, but there's no real dynamic arc to the documentary, nor is there a resolution of any real sort.

Give it a whirl if you're a real wine obsessive, but don't expect too much.
