Sweet, simple story,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Conversations With My Gardener [DVD]  (DVD)
For a while, this admittedly talky film (the title is quite accurate, it is mostly conversations) bored me a bit.
While the two actors are terrific, the stakes didn't seem very high, and some of the talk seemed too `easy'
in it's wisdom; the working class gardener imparting what's really important in life to the upper-class artist.
Not a new concept.
But this is one of those films that gains it's power by accumulation, and by the end of the film, when life has
intervened in more dramatic ways, as it inevitably does, I found myself quite touched, if not deeply moved,
and looking back on the whole experience of the film with a wistful fondness.
