It’s something in moments of stress and pressure we’ve all thought about – leaving that professional career behind for a rural European lifestyle. Just take a look at YouTube! Here Nick Scott review “From the Vine”. Italian-Canadian throws it all up and goes back to his genetic homeland, Italy! Here’s what Nick thought about “From the Vine” –
I’ve seen some films that I have considered walking out of after the first half. – “From the Vine” is not one of them.
“From the Vine” is refreshing viewing because It keeps you attention from the beginning until the closing credits. This is due in a large part to the lead character brought to life by Joe Pantoliano. No, I’d never heard of him either. He does a great job in portraying a man going through a crisis. A man deciding to return to his roots in Italy, in particular returning to his grandfather’s vineyard.
The script is well written and quite witty. This is a light comedy but parts of it will make you laugh out loud. The other characters are well written and all acted well.
The scenery in this part of Italy is features a lot in the film. It is like every shot and imagehas been carefully thought out and this makes it a film worth seeing – especially at the current low prices at Tauranga Rialto. They won’t last forever so make the most of them.
“From The Vine” was originally part of the Italian film Festival at The Rialto Tauranga. It was but brought back because of its appeal to cinema viewers generally, not just a film festival crowd.
