The Queen's Garden1977

  • 3.7
Critically acclaimed and enthralling study of the wildlife of Buckingham Palace Gardens is narrated by Virginia McKenna of the Born Free Foundation and written, produced and directed by Bill Travers. The Queen's Garden at Buckingham Palace forms a unique area of garden and parkland in the heart of London. BORN FREE wildlife authority Bill Travers gained permission to spend a summer studying the garden and the astonishing variety of wildlife and plants that are established there. This is an unforgettable and unrepeatable film of the other side of Buckingham Palace.

While the cinematography was perhaps stellar in 1977 when this film was made, it's faded and washed out now. Still, being able to see the gardens at Buckingham Palace some 40 years ago is a truly timeless experience.

A gem of English cinema. A playful orchestral score accompanies the movements of a grand garden as it comes in to the full bloom of an English summer. Lots of comedic relief to balance the pomp of the film.

Very enjoyable.
