The official tie-in to the movie directed by Ridley Scott, starring Russell Crowe and Albert Finney--a Twentieth Century Fox release.

Love, laughter, wine, and the glorious landscape of Provence abound in this movie from director Ridley Scott, who conceived the idea for this story with his ProvenCal neighbor Peter Mayle. Mayle then went on to write the novel on which the movie is based.

The film's stars, Russell Crowe and Albert Finney, and its talented international cast and crew are beautifully portrayed in these pages, which also include an exclusive Q&A with Scott and Mayle, passages from the Marc Klein screenplay, a synopsis of the story, and fascinating behind-the-scene notes about the filmmaking, winemaking, and Provence. Includes over 130 beautiful production photos and illustrations.
