Has anyone found where the Mondovino Doc. can be streamed?
Any other favorite gems you've found?
Not a wine movie, just a French movie, but this is my all-time favorite movie clip involving wine. Diner de Cons Lafite 1978
This is a scene from the comedy, Le Diner de Cons, where the wealthy, tax-cheating, and desperate main character is about to host dinner for his shrewd tax collector in exchange for information regarding his wife's whereabouts. It's in French and they speak super fast, but I watch the clip again and again and pick up new banter each time.
Just one thing, "tax-cheating" is very common in France, it's not exclusive to that character, or just wealthy people. Taxes in France have been so crushing for so long that hiding one's wealth is part of french's culture for all citizens. Which makes us love that scene even more.
