a good year

ridley scott, director of such war epics as black hawk down, gladiator and hostage, tackles a romantic comedy with a surprisingly soft touch. This would be the headline of the article that I would write about a good year. a damn good movie in a genre full of cliched trash. russel crowe does a "grand" job as maxamillion skinner, a megarich trader who inherits his uncles french villa and vineyard (the place where he spent his summers as a youth). Aiming to sell it, he travels to france and fixes it up for the buyers, eventually he falls in love with it and a girl in town(beautifully played by Marion Cotillard). Albert Finney is so great in flashback montages, he sorta made this movie for me. i liked this one.
