"A GOOD YEAR" is a 2006 British romantic comedy directed by Ridley Scott, starring Russell Crowe, the lovely Marion Cotillard and many other great ones.
I guarantee it will take you from a common stressful reality to a far away place full of magic. The movie is about discovering your roots, reconnecting to yourself and evaluating your priorities in life. It is also about family, love, earth, nature, culture differences between the UK and France and funny approaches. Does it hurt that most scenes are set in Provence? I thought so!

More than the plot and the beautiful house, what captured me most was the "something in the air" feeling, the sunlight diffusing amongst the trees, the magic you can almost feel going on the air and the scents coming from the earth you can almost smell. The breathtaking views and the overall enchanting feeling that captivates your mind and heart is inevitable.
The movie is best enjoyed with a glass of wine and some cheese and this is mandatory because you will see much of it on screen and get jealous for sure.
I hope you watch it, get your hearts warmed and your minds flown away!!
And for those of you that have already watched this movie, a second time doesn't make it any less perfect. Let me know if you liked it as much as I did :)
Have a great week friends!
