Synopsis: MONDOVINO was shot on three continents, in five languages, over a three-year period. Juxtaposing artisanal wine growers with multi-national conglomerates, and peasants with billionaires, Nossiter weaves together multiple family and multi-generational sagas, and uncovers a complex tapestry of rivalries, alliances, and conspiracies - all stemming from the production, distribution, and consumption of one of the oldest, most respected luxuries remaining. MONDOVINO gives voice to those who create, critique, and do commerce in wine, offering up a surprisingly prismatic, varied, and sometimes controversial glimpse into a product so many enjoy but so few truly understand.

MONDOVINO was one of the rare non-fiction films to be shown in the 2004 Cannes Film Festival's main competition and was selected by New York's Museum of Modern Art for its new Premiere series in December, 2004. It opened in November in France where it instantly became a sensation with critics and audiences alike and it has been nominated for a Cesar (French equivalent of the Oscars®) for Best Film from the European Union.     Source:
