Movie Reviews

A charming and beautifully written film - see it!
careful buyer | CT USA | 07/27/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Once again I am left wondering if the NEW YORK TIMES reviewer saw the same film I did. Take my advice - ignore the review and see this film! Joel Hershman has created a real gem on a relatively tiny budget - $3 million - but there are no corners cut anywhere. The actors are beautifully cast, and create an entertaining ensemble effort. Clive Owen is, as all breathing females will soon attest, delicious to watch and David Kelly has all the frailty and humor that we saw in him in WAKING NED DEVINE. I am not generally a fan of Helen Mirren, but she was ideally cast here as a proper gardening British lady of a certain age. I was particularly impressed by Mr. Hershman's screenwriting for this movie - very compact, very funny and on a number of occasions very touching without being maudlin. A very rewarding movie going experience in a summer otherwise characterized by mind-numbing violence, speed and foul language. I am looking forward to Mr. Hershman's future work -"

"The tradition of sweet, dopey, "cute" gangsters and prison inmates probably started with Damon Runyon way back in the 1920's and culminated with the musical "Guys and Dolls" in the 40's. The inhabitants of the prison in Joel Hershman's "Greenfingers" are more like Runyon's chracters than they are like those of the "Lock, Stock and Smoking Barrels" variety to be sure. "Greenfingers" is a slight, sweet trifle of a movie lucky enough to have Clive Owen (PBS' "Second Sight") and Helen Mirren (also PBS' "Prime Suspect")as it's chief chracters. Both of these actors are, as usual, excellent and convincing in their roles. The plot revolves around a minimum security prison where a few of it's inmates discover and nurture a love of gardening which ultimately leads them to enter a big time Horticultural event in England. The idea of gardening as a way of life and a national passion is foreign to us here in the USA but in England it is very real and very BIG. "Greenfingers" is full of good cheer and everyone involved seems to be having a great time. Who can object to that?"
Little Gem

"This is a movie I had never even heard of, but with my new found love of Clive Owen movies, I had to check this one out. I just loved it, and I enjoyed watching it a second time, and will probably enjoy it as much the third.

It's a sweet, albiet, mostly predictable movie, but I just don't think there is anything wrong with that. I hope that with Clive Owen becomming even more well know that this little gem will get a second chance to be discovered. It's in the model of so manyn other British comedies that come our way, and it's a movie that will keep a smile on your face right through to the end credits. I think people should treat themselves to this sweet prize."
