“The Red Thread” – Fil Rouge – The Life Story of a Bordeaux Wine Producer in 17 mins




Achille Lambert (Bernard Gadrat) is a wine producer in Bordeaux in the twilight of his life. When his daughter, Roxane (Cazenave), arranges for a blind wine tasting with four specifically selected bottles of wine, Achille not only savours the taste of the wines before him but all the life experiences that came with them.

As a result of the experience, Achille is able to find peace and to embrace and celebrate his journey through a life filled with love and family and now drawing to a close.

Written and directed by French filmmaker Luc Plissonneau, The Red Thread (Fil Rouge) is constructed with a series of short vignettes that, more importantly, become the wholeness of Achille’s life as captured in this 17+ minute film. Beautifully and tenderly designed and acted by a marvelous ensemble cast, led by Gadrat and Cazenave, The Red Thread is a visual feast as it often seems only the French can create. – Richard Propes The Independent Critic
