  1. Adam Whybray's rating of the film The Gardener

    3.6 stars. Melodrama, but human, not manipulative. Sjöström was very skilled at telling women's stories sympathetically, not luridly (considering his plots similarities to those of von Trier). I watched this while listening to Chopin's nocturnes and it was quietly devastating. Lili Bech gives a fine performance. This is how husband and wife collaborations can look when the film isn't an exercise in emotional abuse.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film The Gardener

    Une des toutes premières réalisations du grand metteur en scène suédois Viktor Sjöström, dont il ne reste malheureusement aucune version intégrale de disponible à ce jour et qui est déjà symptomatique des chefs-d'oeuvre à venir... www.cinefiches.com

  3. Jesse Furgurson's rating of the film The Gardener

    An enjoyable little melodrama that really piles on the sad. Sjostrom already evinces an ace sense of composition.
