Saint Amour Film Synopsis

 

Bruno (Benoît Poelvoorde) is a single, middle-aged farmer who spends one week each year with his father in Paris at the Agricultural Trade Fair. This year, their bull is competing for a prize, but Bruno decides to go around drinking all the free samples of wine and becomes embarrassingly drunk.
