Red Obsession

Red Obsession is brilliant and remarkably so. Directed by Warrick Ross and David Roach, the approach to this story is one of respect, intelligence and a sizeable dose of good humor. It is also beautifully shot.

The story starts with tales of how wonderful Bordeaux is.  The Bordelaise really are fabulous, just ask them.   Matched to some beautiful tracking shots and Russell Crowe’s dulcet tones, you get in the mood.  Bordeaux is the be-all and end-all when it comes to wine. It’s clearly good to be the king.

We hear of how prices of top Bordeaux have risen, fuelled by an insatiable appetite of Chinese buyers.  Will this bubble burst?

We snigger at the Chinese sex toy tycoon who has one of the most impressive wine collections in the world.

We smirk at the wine Disneyland’s created in China to replicate the grandeur of Bordeaux.

Red Obsession is far more than a documentary about wine. It tells a story. Whilst the topic is always at risk of isolating an audience, the characters and personalities here make it compelling and engaging giving it far greater and broad ranging appeal.

Wine lover or not, this is 79 minutes you will not regret.

Red Obsession is currently screening at Cinema Nova and Palace Cinemas.
