The gorgeous photography and soft-spoken commentary is all very soothing, but a little of it goes a long way.

Overall "The Gardener" is flat and lacking in soul, a word that comes up many times in the movie.

If spring is best greeted in a garden, Sébastien Chabot's delightful documentary on Frank Cabot's world-famous English-style spread of green and flowers might be the best thing you'll come across all May.

Audiences may leave feeling they'll never approach Cabot's level of expertise, but they may conclude they have enough time to throw together a little vegetable garden after all.

Like the garden itself, the film is nice to look at, but beyond its eye-candy appeal, it's decidedly light fare. Botanists and flora enthusiasts will undoubtedly find a lot to like about The Gardener, as would anyone looking for a soothing respite.
