A Romantic Comedy with at touch of looniness.
Hot Chardonnay is about the beautiful and resourceful Jenny who operates a run down country hotel together with her over protective father, Magnus(57). The sorrow of her life is that ever since she was a little girl her “boyfriends” have mysteriously disappeared from her life just as the relation was getting somewhere.
Now, at 25, Jenny thinks it’s high time for her to get a close encounter with a man. Her opportunity comes when wildlife Tv-host and womanizer Rex books a room for one night. He is there in pursuit of the wild lynx, but when his attention is diverted to Jenny, Magnus’ territorial instincts kick in and Rex stands eye to eye with the most dangerous beast he’s ever seen.
Jenny though, is determined that this time she´ll reach her goal…
“We love our anti-heroes having grown up with the Basil Fawltys, Clark W. Griswolds and Detective Clouseau in The Pink Panther. In Rex we have stumbled across a character who’s addictive in his selfishness and falseness. Magnus is scaringly single minded in protecting his daughter and Jenny is a wonder of clear sight and humour”.
