When this movie finally premiered in Sweden (Feb -03) it didn't get that good reviews. Me and my friends were planning to see "My big fat Greek wedding", but it was sold-out, and we agreed to see "Greenfingers". I've enjoyed Clive Owens performances in "Tanner" and "Gosford park" before, and hoped he would be equally good here. He was. I have to say that he is an awesome actor, with an amazing face. He's got that hard Pacino-face, excellent.
Anyway, we didn't have our hopes up about the film, but what a gem! Really warm, beautiful sceneries, great characters and a splendid sound track. I have a little garden of my own that I usually do nothing about, but this film made me want to grow all sorts of things. Don't miss this movie, it's really great, and David Kellys "Fergus" is a character you do want to see...
I hope that Clive Owen will have a long, successful career.
