Sabine De Barra went directly from an important interview to doing landscaping while wearing her beautiful outfit. While wearing an expensive embroidered corset, it is highly doubtful that she would have gotten it soiled with earth. She would be change into darker clothing or cover it with a dark smock.

André Le Notre:
What if no one person is to blame? And what use is blame? It is enough to have that happen to you. It is enough to recover from it. That is as much as we may ask of ourselves. That is enough.

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.
