Critic Reviews for The Gardener
Makhmalbaf's tone is thoughtful and becalmed, the imagery often poetic.
An intimate, discursive inquiry into religious belief that opens to include questions about cinema ...
Delicately works to see how beautiful the world can look when people embrace each other's differences.
It is by turns poetic, impressionistic, metaphorical and even a bit trippy - without satisfying such genre basics as structure, depth and resolution.
Images and metaphors whimsicially combine in a fine, fast-flowing documentary introducing the Baha'i faith.
Audience Reviews for The Gardener
The Gardener is an amateurishly and cheaply shot, edited and produced video - neither a "film" nor a documentary - that's a rambling narcissistic discussion by the Makhmalbafs. Filled with silly stunts and New Age symbolism.
