"Garden Immaculate” is about a woman in her role as caretaker of a fantastic garden: a symbol of the psyche and the qualities cultivated within it. We watch her, becoming privy to the bewildering, amusing and even sinister methods behind the garden’s beauty. The statues, plants and animals of the garden seem to rebel against their keeper, embodying the struggle to reconcile natural instincts, historical values and modern ideals.
The world portrayed in “Garden Immaculate” is pale, delicate, verging on sterile. The garden appears to be vast, but alas, there is no way in and no way out. M’Lady must forever dwell within the high hedge walls, fixed within an environment of her own creation. I wonder what her world would be like if she was no longer in control.
