Dialogue avec mon jardinier (Conversations with my Gardener) - French movie. The movie should be subtitled.
Never released commercially in the U.S., Dialogue is a simple and elegant masterpiece about the love shared by two friends, with two outstanding performances and a marvelously written dialogue. Dauber (Daniel Auteuil) is a successful Parisian artist who returned to his family's rundown manor following the deaths of his parents three years before. Now, facing divorce and a malaise in his work he hires a gardener (Jean-Pierre Darroussin) to restore his beloved mother's overgrown old garden. The man who applies for the job turns out to be the artist's boyhood school chum and the painter will have some remarkable "Conversations with My Gardener." As they begin to see everything through each other's eyes, they find a beauty they have never seen before.
Please let me know if you would be interested in meeting for coffee or dinner before the movie and if so, if you know of a place close to UW-Milwaukee.
$6 general; $5 faculty; $4 students - this is the ticket price which you will pay to UWM at the movie theater.
