The Garden

A 1995 Slovak feature, directed and cowritten by Martin Sulik, about a 30-year-old schoolteacher beset by problems who gradually becomes enlightened by the experience of spending time in his late grandfather’s overgrown garden. If memory servesI saw this a couple of years ago and retain only a few imagesthis is an intriguing and poetic piece of magical realism. It was nomiated for an Oscar. (JR)
