Where has this little beauty of a film been all these years? I loved it. It is a great little story with all the elements of a classic that one wants to visit again and again. Colin, the downcast hero, in prison and almost resigned to a life without hope learns that life is like a seed that is planted reluctantly, grows against all odds and blooms to bring delight to many. In the process, his life mirrors the flower, grown on tough soil, defies his odds, finds true love and lasting friendship with a motley crew of delightful characters. Set against the background of the Hampton Court flower show, this film is a wonderful experience.
