Trivia

The book of poems from which Sabine reads was actually written by Robert Hass, who plays the part of the poet. Later, when Cally is in the bookstore, both that book and his earlier volume of poems are seen on the shelf. See more »

Goofs

When Cally first visits Sabine, she is carrying Sabine's diary and a white box of chocolates. Cally put the chocolates on the poet's bedside table as she introduces herself to him. She also returns Sabine's diary to her, and does not get it back again. However, later on in the film we see Cally standing outside the poet's house, and she is once again carrying Sabine's diary and the box of chocolates. See more »

Overall a good film, but there's something missing
1 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

Wildflowers was a film with a simple but moving story. The characters made sense - they were eccentric but down to earth and convincing and the dialogue was realistic and engaging at the same time. Cally and Sabine are wonderfully acted and their relationship is truly fascinating to watch. The peripheral characters, too (Cally's friends and some of the commune members), were great to watch - they had their own personalities and some good lines. One of the best features of the film was definitely the camerawork - stunning shots of Pacific scenery and really evocative lighting in the scenes with people.

However, the movie did get slow at times - don't expect anything truly exciting. And maybe it's just me, but there did seem to be some plot holes that never resolved themselves; i found myself wondering "how does Cally know so-and-so?" and "how did she get from point A to point B?" sometimes. Also, I would have liked to find out more about Cally's past, what life on the commune was like, and other details about the characters that were never revealed. That would have given the events a lot more context.

Overall, "Wildflowers" was thought-provoking and simply a good film to watch. If you concentrate on what is is rather than what it could have been, I predict you'll love it.
