Format: DVD
This is a beautifully crafted directorial debut by the cinematographer who photographed "La Reine Margot". The story builds slowly but steadily with intriguing performances from Ewan McGregor and Carmen Chaplin. If taken at face value, the film may not be what many may expect but then that is the premise of the story itself, in that, not all the characters are what they seem either. Using the construction of the garden as a metaphor for the various conflicts that become apparent as the storyline develops, the director never opts to spell things out for the audience in black-and-white but perhaps not surprisingly, allows the visuals to tell the story. A totally satisfying experience if you like your films to breathe.

Format: DVD
An uneven attempt to bring romanticism of 18th century costume drama in line with modern desire under the elm make this film a boring venture. Despite strong casting that features Ewan McGregor, Greta Scacchi, Richard E. Grant, and Pete Postelwaite, the story rambles and is at times incoherent. The story centers on the construction of a formal garden to mark the arrival of a businessman (Postlewaite) and his wife (Scacchi) to the local gentry class is marred by the arrival of the woman's lecherous cousin (Grant). Grant's presence is ominous and clearly an annoyance to landscape architect, Meneer Chrome (McGregor), whose own distraction by the couple's daughter is more than an obstacle to completion of his assignment. A lot of heaving bosoms by mother and daughter offer some distraction and foreshadow the ending. Unintentional comedic timing by McGregor make his character's statement "Garden design has made some progress since the Italian Rennaisance and their water games." an unfortunate commentary on the film. The entire production sinks under the weight of poor direction and wigs. This is a disappointment despite all good intentions by an excellent cast of actors.

A little disappointed as the description and cast list suggested something brilliant. The costumes are stunning as is the setting of the house and garden. I began to lose interest though when the garden was created, with hige stone walls which were then blown down in a mysterious hurricane. They looked decidedly made of cardboard and it was difficult to take the film seriously from then on. It did redeem itself though due in no small part to Richard E. Grant's dramatic poisoning, by his own poison, which he had planned for Ewan McGregor's character. It was a relief when Ewan McGregor dropped the fake Dutch accent and the film ended happily with the tortured daughter being saved by McGregor and the pair going off together.

As a fan of Ewan McGregor, I thought I would buy this DVD as I had not seen or heard of it before, however sadly I did find it a bit slow and at times boring, very seldom have I been checking the clock to see how much longer the film will be, the last piece of the film is the best. May be if I watch it a few times it will get better, but sadly not one of his best films.

all the cast are superb. Richard E. Grant as the foppish, slimy, degenerate,incestuous, avaricious, nasty villain of the piece is excellent. Greta Scacchi also plays her role with splender along with the late Pete Postlethwaite as the gulliable good hearted owner of the garden in question. wonderfully scripted and filmed it is a sheer joy to watch.
