The Rose Maker – Friday Film @ Tinahely Courthouse

Rose Maker, The 3

“Every garden blooms in its own season”

Gifted and eccentric horticulturalist Eve Vernet (Catherine Frot) honours her father’s legacy by continuing the family business, breeding exquisite roses that compete in showcases all over France. However, her stubbornly artisanal approach struggles to compete with the mass market production from her corporate rivals. Facing imminent bankruptcy, Eve’s trusted assistant Vera (Olivia Côte), makes a last-ditch effort to turn things around by secretly hiring three new employees from a prison rehabilitation program.

The new recruits: Fred, Samir and Nadège are misunderstood outcasts with fresh ideas, strong work ethics, and absolutely no gardening skills. After resisting the newcomers’ presence, Eve warms to their idiosyncrasies, and, banding together, the team comes up with a zany and risky plan to try and save the business.

A charming and witty comedy-drama, The Rose Maker is a crowd-pleasing tale of the fight for independence in the cutthroat world of artisan floristry. A fierce lead performance from Catherine Frot proves a particular highlight here, with the Marguerite star once again proving herself to be one of France’s most compelling screen performers.

“ A sweet, gently scented French diversion that is likely to teach you far more than you already knew about hybridizing flowers” – Variety

“ An engaging tale about competition, cooperation and creativity” – The Los Angeles Times
