Summary "The story of two school friends united later in life, one a gardener, the other a painter, set in the picturesque French countryside. Starring acclaimed French actors Daniel Auteuil and Jean-Pierre Darroussin, Conversations With My Gardener offers a parable on life and pays a tribute to the joys and melancholies of friendships that are based on opposing lifestyles and points of view. Daniel Auteuil plays a sophisticated artist who has moved away from his roots in the country and achieved success as an artiste in Paris. His tendency to relish in the perks of painting young, beautiful nude models has his wife at wits end and sees him retreat to the country house he inherited from his parents. It is here he meets his gardener and old friend from school whose happy and simple life is so opposed to his own. The painter's marriage is breaking down and he spends his days analysing and philosophising life with his old friend. In the twilight of their lives and the peace of the countryside, the two men form a comfortable intimacy as they share memories of childhood, marriages, children and careers." -- World Movies website
