Synopsis: Sundance Audience Award winner Ma Belle, My Beauty is an intimate portrayal of two women, reunited in the South of France, trying to pick up the pieces of their former romance.
Lane, Bertie and Fred once shared a polyamorous relationship in New Orleans. Lane loved Bertie, Fred loved Bertie, they had a balance that worked… until it didn’t, and Lane vanished from their lives. Bertie and Fred (both jazz musicians) have now married and moved to the French countryside to focus on their music careers, but Bertie has lost her inspiration and Fred, just weeks out from their joint music tour, is quietly desperate to get Bertie back in the groove.
Fred invites Lane for a surprise visit, hoping her return will spark something in Bertie. But as Lane attempts to recreate their old, carefree dynamic, unresolved tensions quickly surface. After a chance meeting at a party, a jilted Lane turns her attention to a beautiful young artist. Soon, jealousies and passions ignite in equal measure.
A nuanced and aching exploration of the complexities of love set against the sun-drenched and wine-soaked vineyards of Southern France, Ma Belle, My Beauty takes viewers on a trip they won’t soon forget.

“One cool, Spring day in the shadow of Mt. Konocti, a family came to lay out their vineyard using straws to mark where the vines would be planted. While feasting during their midday lunch they saw a murder of crows dancing around the straws, which made them laugh. Yet, when they looked again, the crows and the straws were gone. The family learned two things that day: be wary of dancing crows, and what to name their vineyard.”
Dancing Crow Vineyards is the culmination of multiple generations of wine experience and the collective energies of the Cartlidge-Forni family. Winemakers, David and Katharine DeSante, contribute their shared knowledge to create stylistically unique wines for California. The winery boasts just over 56 acres of distinctive terroir with soils ranging from volcanic loam to sediment clay. Since starting in 2014, Dancing Crow Vineyards has gone on to become one of the most renowned wineries in Lake County.
