13th Green Mountain Film Festival: <i>Conversations with My Gardener</i> Montpelier Vermont

In this poignant 2007 film, never released in the United States, a Parisian artist (Daniel Auteuil) taking refuge in the countryside forms a powerful friendship with the gardener (Jean-Pierre Darroussin) he knew as a child. The two men are not reduced to mere city sophisticate and rural innocent stereotypes; they are both complex individuals, given real depth by the excellent actors. The gardener makes a case for working-class values that we rarely see in cinema, and by the end the painter is looking at the tacky decorations in his modest flat with a new understanding of their worth. Time Out, London: "Its simple framework of stories and observations persistently provides entertainment and a warm good humor full of gentle comedy. To put it simply, one rarely sees a film this well crafted." Sponsored by Northfield Savings Bank. Community Partners: Chronique Francophone, Kellogg-Hubbard Library. 109 minutes, in French with subtitles. With short FORMING GAME (7 minutes).
