A Good Year Movie
Long ago I fell in love with the 2006 romantic, comedy, A Good Year Movie. Russell Crowe stars as Max Skinner a ruthless and successful London bond trader. He is the only heir to his Uncle Henry’s (Albert Finney) vineyard and Chateau in Provence where he spent a lot of time as a child. He has not kept in touch with his Uncle as an adult.
All Max wants to do is sell the Chateau for a profit and get back to his city life. A lot of things happen to prevent the sale of the château. A stranger appears claiming to be his Uncle’s mysterious illegitimate daughter (Abbie Cornish) and Max meets a beautiful woman named Fanny (Marian Cotillard) who captures his heart.
The storyline is infectious with delightful characters. But, it’s the château, vineyard scenery and music that will carry you away to a land of enchantment that you will never be able to forget.
The movie is based on the book A Good Year by Peter Meyle. Directed by Ridley Scott who owned a home in Provence and was friends with Peter Meyle. It was filmed on location at Château la Canorgue in Provence with scenes inside the house, outside the house and gardens and vineyards.
Michael and Shirley of Sablethouseblogspot Our House in Provence bought “a beautiful stone village house located in the heart of the medieval village of Sablet in Vaucluse region of Provence France.” They share their experiences in France on their blog. On a visit to the now famous A Good Year château and vineyards, they took these beautiful photos of the house, gardens and vineyards.
Sablethouse in Our House in Provence: Russell Crowe share that there are 74 acres of organically grown vineyards.

There is a bit of a cult following for the A Good Year movie. Have you seen it? Of all the great Russell Crowe movies, A Good Year, is one of his best performances in my opinion.

This movie house reminds me of Letters To Juliet
