Thérèse tends a Creole garden in Guadeloupe. She stands up to invisible poisons. Her hands become one with the earth, her face with the light.
“Le Jardin” is first and foremost the pleasure of the moment — being there, listening, smelling… Frédérique Menant transports us from the grain of the film to the grain of the skin of hands plunged into the earth. A grainy film from which spring the thousands of colours and textures of a garden and its gardener, a glorious woman who explains her art of living and surviving: “How do I do it? I spend all day every day in the earth.” “Le Jardin” is also the pleasure of the space we offer ourselves when we let ourselves “become one with the earth”, this space to dream and imagine something different. And understand the extent to which the garden is a resource that nourishes both body and soul.
