Description

Violette Toussaint is the caretaker at a cemetery in a small town in Bourgogne. Her daily life is lived to the rhythms of the hilarious and touching confidences of random visitors and her colleagues-three gravediggers, three groundskeepers, and a priest.

Violette's routine is disrupted one day by the arrival of a local police chief, Julien Seul, who insists on depositing the ashes of his recently departed mother on the gravesite of a complete stranger. The grave Julien is looking for, and his mother's story of clandestine love, is intertwined with Violette's own secret past.

The funny, moving, intimately told story of a woman who believes obstinately in happiness, Fresh Water for Flowers brings out the exceptional and the poetic in the ordinary. A delightful, atmospheric, absorbing tale.
