The Rose Maker (La fine fleur)

Eve Vernet is one of the greatest artisanal horticulturalists in France, but her rose business is facing bankruptcy and her farm is on the verge of being acquired by a corporate competitor. In a last-ditch effort to save the business, she hires three ex-convicts to trade in their “sticky fingers” for a “green thumb.” Catherine Frot (who starred in last year’s Under the Stars of Paris as a homeless woman helping a lost boy find his mother) plays a different kind of mothering role as Eve reluctantly opens up her garden to take in three lost souls under her wing. Like a modern-day allegory, this charming and exquisitely beautiful film shows how a human being can bloom if given the right conditions and nurturing.
