I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that I started drinking again, but the really good news is that I got closer to Bruno.

Jean (Gérard Depardieu)

Every year, Bruno (Benoît Poelvoorde) participates in the agriculture show with his father, Jean (Gérard Depardieu), a cattle breeder. He would like his son to take over the family business, but unfortunately for him, his child has a completely different project: to travel the wine route through the fair. Jean then suggests to his son to realize the real wine road through France, in the company of a mysterious cab driver, Mike (Vincent Lacoste).

During their drunken journey between the different wineries of the country, father and son decide to stop and sleep in a wooden hut in the Parc de la Belle. They meet Venus (Céline Sallette) with whom they will have a sexual relationship each in turn.

For some sequences during the shooting of Saint Amour, Benoît Poelvoorde did not hesitate to drink real wine in order to play the most accurate under the effects of alcohol. Besides, for the scene at the agriculture show, we can see Gustave Kervern whispering his dialogues to him because he is so afraid that he won’t be able to get his text out.

4 000 000

This is the total budget of the film, a very small budget for a comedy of this magnitude with these star actors and the use of real sets.

Park "La Belle"

The Parc de la Belle gathers several gardens offering various landscapes. It is possible to stay in one of the wooden cabins of the park, to live a night in the trees.

Created in 2000 by the Communauté de Communes du pays Gencéen, the Parc de la Belle is today the property of the group “Vos Destination Nature” which owns in addition to the park the Vallée des Singes, Le Cormenier and DéfiPlanet’. The site offers unusual accommodation with 15 cabins on a surface of 12 hectares. The cabins are placed at different heights between 5 and 14 meters high.
In addition to these cabins, the park offers a multitude of landscapes with different gardens in different styles. There is a curated garden, a French garden, flowerbeds running down the hillside, a wetland with a natural wicker maze, or an undergrowth without forgetting the clearings.
