Storyline

Laurie believes that it's possible to communicate with plants via telepathy and devotes all her time and love to them. Her plants do warn her of her sister Rilla's new boyfriend Robert. When Laurie's found dead on the street under her balcony one morning, Rilla doubts that it was an accident. Only a plant was witness that night, so she tries to find a way to learn the truth from it.

The Secret, somewhat dull, Life of Plants
26 August 2002 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

Sort of a murder mystery with a weird thread running through it all - "plant communication," "kirlian photography," and to a much lesser degree: auras, meditation, "pyramid power" etc. The musical score is good, the acting decent, the story OK. This could have been more interesting and engaging, and is the sort of movie which could perhaps benefit from a remake.

Oh - and there's nothing involving dogs, spatulas, or warnings against going in the water, as another user wrote - perhaps he was thinking of another movie.
