Overview

Haughty and vain British industrialist Thomas Smithers Pete Postlethwaite dearly loves his wife Juliana Greta Sacchi. Since they only have a daughter Carmen Chaplin, and a strange one at that, Smithers decides that rather than leaving his fortune to his wife and child, he will build a fabulous garden to honor Julianna, who unfortunately, cares little for such things. Hearing of Smithers's plans, Julianna's conniving cousin Fitzmaurice Richard E. Grant, who has secretly wanted her for himself, suggests that Smithers hire hot young Dutch garden architect Meneer Chrome Ewan McGregor to do the work. Chrome's work does not come cheap, but that is fine with Fitzmaurice who is hoping that the project will bankrupt Smithers and cause Julianna to return to him. Unfortunately for Fitzmaurice, Julianna finds herself falling in love with Chrome. Unfortunately for Julianna, Chrome has fallen in love with her daughter Thea.

    Never seen anything like it.

    I accedently saw the Serpents' Kiss on tv a few weeks ago and it was one of the most wonderful Ewan McGregor films I've ever seen. Really messed up but still so pure and beautyful. (and) I have never seen anyone sexier in 18th century clothes than him, I mean, who could really look sexy in them? But he managed. So except for a beautyful story you'll find som candy for the eye. What more could you ask?
