Elegant and empathetic

VARIETY

Decades of disillusionment come to the fore in dense poetic language, and Wiseman holds them amidst naturalistic footage of the garden, like foie gras on a bed of lettuce.

INDIEWIRE

A valuable and insightful pen-portrait.

THE GUARDIAN

Visually splendid […] and undeniably powerful.
