The magnificent Catherine Frot (Marguerite) takes centre stage as Eve, a world-renowned rose farmer dealing with hard times. In this up-beat and beautifully filmed comedy, Eve allows herself to reluctantly accept help from an unlikely source and by doing so, discovers new aspects of life that are worth nurturing.
Eve was content living her life focused on her passion: being one of the greatest rose makers in the world. However, when financial ruin threatens her livelihood desperate measures are required. Her loyal secretary, Vera, comes up with what she thinks is a brilliant idea to save them, and hires three hapless people from a back-to-work program. There is just one small problem: they know absolutely nothing about gardening. Despite their obvious differences the new team comes up with a crazy plan that could change their lives forever.
Funny and kind-hearted, The Rose Maker makes full use of casting veteran actor Frot alongside a diverse ensemble of emerging actors to play the hapless farmhands; emphasising how underneath all the obvious differences, there is a shared humanity and the potential for friendship.
