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.

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.

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.

This story is about a young, Dutch landscaper, Meaner Chrome (Ewan McGregor), who plans to create an extravagant garden for Thomas Smithers and his wife (Pete Postlethwaite and Greta Scacchi). His real plan or the real motive of this garden is to bankrupt Smithers so the not-so nice James Fitzmaurice (Richard E. Grant) can seduce Smithers wife. But Chrome begins having second thoughts about completing the plan, after he becomes fascinated by Smithers daughter Theca (Carmen Chaplin). I think people who have criticized this movie are far too harsh. I found it to have an excellent story with a talented cast. The performance that I felt most touched by was Carmen Chaplin's. Her struggle to find disorder in a world that wants to have order is an interesting element to the story. What I didn't like was the movie's pacing. I felt the message the movie was conveying that you couldn't control nature. I think this theme would have been better expressed in a short story or a short movie, not a feature length film. A part from that, I can sit through the hour and fifty minutes and feel glad that I saw this movie.

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.
