Portrait of a Garden2016

  • 4.2
In a picturesque garden on a grand country estate, two long time friends, an 85-year old pruning master and the gardener, tend to the espaliers. Surrounded by vegetable patches, citrus trees, the orchard and lush grapevines, they talk about food, the weather, their craft (which is quickly disappearing) and the changing world around them. For fifteen years, they've been working on the pear arbor. But will it finally come together this year? And what about the harvest? Will it be ready for the end-of season banquet? Capturing one year in the life of this historic garden, the magnificent documentary Portrait of a Garden is a beautiful, transcendent viewing experience.

"Good ideas always come to you when you're in the garden."

A relaxing year with nature in a country that has a unique relationship to plant and wildlife.
