  • Summary: An epic exploration into the world of wine, Mondovino is a celebration of wine in its infinite variety that was filmed across three continents, in five languages, over a three-year period. (ThinkFilm)

  1. The highest praise I can give to Mondovino is that it makes you want to sample every vintage it shows you.
  2. This cagey and compelling 2004 documentary looks at the world of wine, but it's actually a nuanced, provocative piece of journalism about globalization and its discontents.
  3. It's such a knowledgeable work and so pleasantly obsessed with its subject that it will interest even audiences whose attraction to wine is only casual.
  4. 70
    For all its pervasive irritations and lack of discipline, succeeds in using below-the-belt tactics to get its message across, especially for those unschooled in the rarified world of oenophilia.
  5. Reviewed by: Duane Byrge
    70
    An insightful and affectionate glimpse into the behind-the-scenes struggles of modern-day winemaking.
  6. If you have a serious interest in wine and the ­patience for this kind of rangy, undisciplined filmmaking, you'll learn something. But you'll have more fun at a winetasting.
  7. As is, it's simply too much information crammed too haphazardly into a running time that at times borders on interminable.
