Trivia

Alison Deegan's script was sent to Alan Rickman so that he might consider playing the part of André Le Notre; Alan said he wasn't sure about that, but that he would like to direct it. Alison had seen and admired The Winter Guest (1997), so they started collaborating with his directing it in mind. Producer Gail Egan asked Rickman to wear a third hat on the project by taking the role of the King because he was best for the part.Rickman eventually acquiesced, because of "the fact that if you are playing Louis XIV, you don't have to move very much - and it's not too far-fetched to say that, as Louis, you keep the same watchful expression on your face as you do when you are directing!", he said.

Enchanting grace
24 July 2015 | by Electron LibreSee all my reviews

This movie is a historical fiction à la "Girl with the Pearl Earring". It is an homage to the search for beauty, an homage to France in its most classical and absolutist period. Other aspects come to join the story of this woman gardener: love, loss etc. The movie shows very well the strange behaviors of the people from the court of Versailles. But it shows as well what real "gentilhommes" (gentlemen), true nobility is. The dialogs are full of meaning, the sceneries, colors are wonderful. If it was filmed in England or in France? I don't care because it works. That is what I like with this movie, the mix of French and English culture. As a Frenchman, I am so found of English culture. Take time to see this beautiful and poetic movie. It is slow, relaxing, gives you the will to look at a flower and smell the sent of it, gives you the will to seek beauty around you. Thank you actors and Mister Rickman for this beautiful moment.
