Synopsis:
In Jean Beckers, Conversations With My Gardener a middle-aged landscape painter, played by Daniel Auteuil, recently separated, who has lived for many years in Paris, returns to the house in Provence where he grew up. He hires a local gardener, Jean-Pierre Darroussin, and soon discovers they were best friends at school together. Based on a book by Henri Cueco, the film is simplicity itself, providing a vehicle for the talents of two fine actors. The old friends spend a lot of time talking, philosophising, and reminiscing. The artist, who, like the gardener, is never given a name, has a girlfriend who stays for a while.
His daughter visits with her fiancé, who is about the same age as her father and the gardener falls ill. There isn't much more to it than that but this relaxed and in some ways quintessential French film is appealing simply because it's content to explore, in a gentle, meandering fashion, a long-standing friendship.

DELIGHTFUL - Conversations with My Gardener review by JF

Spoiler Alert

Very French. This is a gentle study of the relationship between the townie who returns to his roots, and the gardener. It is really the gardener who is the star, a character who is observant, yet views the world with simplicity. This an lovely and undemanding film, well made and most satisfying.
