The perfect place to wine, dine & recline in the centre of Banbury.

A Good Year.

To sum it up: Russell Crowe leaves his money-making English life behind, where he goes around trying to convince women to have sex with him for a life in France where makes money, goes around trying to convince women to have sex with him and drinks wine. Nice vineyards, sunsets, “arses”, bras, skin and horrible wine, men and misogyny are all present in a fest of vulgarity.

Max Skinner inherits his uncle’s vineyard in France, where he apparently finds his soul by drinking disgusting wine and looking at women’s legs. Old dear Russell claims that his uncle was a man who “drank and shagged to the bitter end.” Here we see the nephew do it all over again. He swans around the vineyard, continually phoning up his English office where he makes money out of air and expects everyone to love him and care for his needless and shallow life and existence. A man who asks if it is legal to shag his own cousin and then asks another women out on date, all the while staring at lawyers skirts and looking at his servants bottom. The amount of women’s bodily parts Crowe “admires” is uncountable.

Not only does Russell Crowe fall madly in love with his cousin, but so does his ‘best friend’ and every other man that encounters her. He expects every women to run away with him because their life doesn’t matter. Why can such a misogynist and vile man get away with chasing every sign if female flesh? “A Good Year” claims its because he has money coming out of his arse. Max Skinner doesn’t do holidays, or subtlety, but he does make money.

Max Skinner is every scene, but out of its running time its heroine is only on the screen for ten minutes. Though of course when Skinner has an awakening in the final five minutes of the film he realises that looking at the bottom of every women he sees might not be wise, so he stops for a few seconds and lets all the other men do eth staring for him. But no, what’s this? It only turns out he’s decide to not stop starring completely, but to narrow it down to only two women: his cousin and his under developed, mute and wooden girlfriend.

Why should I care whether his inheritance produces good or “s***” wine(that’s the technical word used to describe the quality of his wine)? His cousin cares about wine, his servants care about wine, everyone cares about wine! Only I couldn’t care less whether it’s palatable or worth just spitting out straight into the glass. As we watch two hours of male fantasies we are forced to wallow in the apparent “intoxication” of the French backdrop. Just because every single frame is tinged with an annoying yellowish glow doesn’t mean that I want to watch women fall for a male chauvinist set against a backdrop filled with sunsets and vineyards.

A Good Year (2006) Trailer.

What a clichéd and needless film “A Good Year” is. Yet again Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe prove that apart from the occasional Oscar winner, they can’t create a film together that stands on its own two feet. “My nephew is selfish,” Skinners uncle used to say, “Why can’t he enjoy the simple pleasures in life?” According to this film the simple pleasures are drinking terrible wine, starring at women’s bottoms, legs and tits and reminding everyone what a total arse you are.

Noah. I am 13 years old and I am writing all the film and TV reviews that you will see on this page. I love films. I love them because how they take you into a completely different world to your own. Films take you on an emotional journey, whether they make you cry or laugh films are wonderful. Even the terrible ones make you laugh, because they are so terrible. Films have the ability to show us other worlds and show us how the world that we live in is changing. https://myscreennotebook.wordpress.com/
