Cabot's meticulously and ambitiously designed Les Quatre Vents in bucolic Quebec is the star attraction, but Luc St. Pierre's score is magical and the interviewees are in their best chatty grooves.

Los Angeles TimesGary Goldstein

This is a soothing and transporting journey sure to inspire gardeners of all stripes to create their own slice of heaven.

The New York TimesHelen T. Verongos

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

The Hollywood ReporterFrank Scheck

The central figure in Sebastien Chabot's documentary exhibits undeniable passion. Describing the object of his adoration, he comes across an intelligent, articulate and more than a little long-winded. Whether or not you'll enjoy hearing him expound at length will depend on how interested you are in gardens.

VarietyJessica Kiang

Chabot’s film is not “The Garden,” but The Gardener and as a portrait of the man behind Quatre Vents, unlike the gorgeous flora, it never blossoms.
