Description In a historical vegetable garden on a Dutch estate, the 85 year-old pruning master and the gardener tend to the espaliers. As they prune, the men chat about food, the weather, the world and they share their knowledge of horticulture. Surrounded by vegetable patches, citrus trees in the historical orangery, the orchard and lush grapevines we're swept along by their passion, dedication and knowledge that make up the essential ingredients of successfully maintaining a large vegetable garden. Fifteen years they have spent working on the pear arbour. Will it finally close over this year? Despite his old age, the pruning master is still inexhaustible and driven. As he worries about the loss of centuries of knowledge, the younger gardener makes a real effort of soaking up all this knowledge and passing it on. Meanwhile the seasons go by. The gardening lady works the vegetable patches, the citrus trees leave their winter accommodation and we get to meet the Apple Blossom Beetle. The grand finale is in August with its seemingly never-ending harvest and its abundance of taste, colour and scent. As peace slowly returns to the natural world, it's business as usual for the gardener amid the falling leaves and the white frost on the branches. Everything has its time.

Yes, it is the case. And yes, I can see why this documentary is not widely known. The first film, "Cheerful' is a far less successful documentary. In this movie, Van Vleck can do more. On the contrary, the next film, "I'm not afraid of people" is a wonderful documentary, but it also suffers from its over-abundance of science-fiction and sci-fi-like elements. Of course, it can't be faulted that the director tried to express with this film the difficulties of studying with a strange language, the shortcomings of abstract knowledge. Still, I think that there is another problem here. I can't understand why this director goes from the difficult subject to the silly and childish. For example, why is it that he keeps on repeating "I'm not afraid of people". Maybe he has to apologize to the viewers for having made it. Or maybe he just doesn't know how to express what he's saying. Or maybe he knows how to express what he's saying, but he's still going through the process. The next movie is less successful. This is a short documentary, but it is quite interesting. It shows a lot of social and psychological problems, such as sexual problems and the like, and it doesn't try to be too artistic. The problems are shown from the perspective of a woman who's found a job as a photographer in a seedy, weird and industrial area. And this job is probably the most important and difficult thing for the woman to do. Yet she still isn't afraid of her fellow workers. It's an interesting and effective documentary. Unfortunately, the director goes away from it. He also tries to tell the story of a strange man, but it is quite boring. If he had tried to tell the story of the woman who's found a job, it would have been better and more interesting. The man and woman are still almost in love with each other, but it's quite silly to make the story of that as a romantic one. Still, the next one is pretty successful. This is a small documentary, but it shows the life of a man who has lost a child. Of course, he is in a group of people, but he tries to cope with life. He doesn't really have to do anything. He just tries to give the people some food, to hide from the police or to hide from the neighbor. He doesn't seem to care, but he does. He doesn't think about his problems, but he does. And there are two things I really liked: the first is his reaction to the conversation between the child and the dog, and the second is his attitude towards the man who has been moved by the dog. One of them is very good and the other very bad. The poor man is acting very silly, but his way of dealing with everything is really interesting. He is in a group of people, but he doesn't look much different from the rest. He doesn't act too differently. I found the first part of this documentary really good. But the second part is rather stupid. The way that the group deals with the dog is very simple, but that's also the main problem with it. Yes, the group tries to cope with the dog, but the way they do it is absolutely silly. I don't understand how it can be that some of them can act so differently from the rest. In the end, I really found the last two parts very stupid, but the other two are really good. At least, the first two parts are very good. The other two parts are too stupid and stupid. It's a really bad documentary, but at least it's a very good documentary.

I think I've heard this movie somewhere before. It's very nice. No spoilers. There's really nothing to spoil, if you think that you've already seen it. The movie is about a boy named Neil and his dad, an "expert" on all things rat-infested. When Neil's dad is taking a short vacation, he has to go to the local school. This is where he meets the teacher, who actually knows what she's doing. The teacher is actually the only one who seems to know what she's doing, but Neil can't do that because he doesn't know. What follows is a short movie with Neil and the teacher in a classroom, learning about rats. And it's not that the rat movie isn't a good one, it is, it's a very good one. It's just that you'll get bored after a while, and the movie is not very long. What you'll also see are some amazing human skeletons, and they're not the ones that look like skeletons. They look like human skeletons, and they are made from bones. I was very impressed with that. One thing that I really liked was the way that the skeleton in the school looked, when the teacher told the kids that the skeletons were not like skeletons, but human skeletons. The skeleton that Neil found was made of bones, so it wasn't made of flesh. And I was also impressed by that, because the skeletons were always people, and the teachers always used human bones, but when the skeletons were human, the teachers always used human bones. I hope that this will be shown at the school, because I really want to see it again.

Virtually all the world's population has watched the movie for the first time, perhaps as an introduction to the message of the film. The basic message of the movie is that there is a huge amount of scientific research going on in the world. As the story progresses, the viewer is encouraged to spend a little more time investigating the scientific research and each scientist's contributions. But in the end, the viewer still has the feeling that there are many more questions to be asked. There are just a few scientific questions to be asked. Do we know anything about astrology? Are there any links between "love" and astrology? What are the effects of external stimuli on the human body? Are there any links between the forces of nature and astrology? Can the people of the world do anything to control the forces of nature? To answer these questions, the viewer needs to take time and ask the questions again and again, perhaps with the help of a few friends. This is where the movie is worth watching. As a viewer, you will be engaged by the story and by the scientific research. The viewer can benefit from the scientific research for himself. The viewer can also benefit from the science of astrology, both its scientific and historical aspects. But, as a viewer of the movie, you will also benefit from the movie's message. You will gain knowledge on how to utilize your own efforts to raise your knowledge, and this knowledge will have benefits for you and your family.

This is a documentary about an experiment where people are treated like animals. People are subjected to an experimental test where they are put in a test cage where they are starved and denied any food or water. They are then forced to play with a set of dolls for a whole day. The two main participants are Dutch national team members who played for the Netherlands in the World Cup qualifiers, and a Dutch psychologist who is conducting a study on people who are forced to do this sort of thing. The experiment was carried out by a Dutch institution called "The Children's Institute" in Amsterdam. They are essentially trying to find out if the experimental treatment is more effective than the treatment that the children actually receive, and it's hard to tell. I like the idea of an experiment, but the treatment itself was very unscientific and that it had been done before and did not seem as effective as I expected. The thing that really irritated me about the experiment is that it was obviously very unscientific and based on some dubious studies. The Dutch psychologist is obviously not a scientist, but it did seem to me that he was either in the wrong place or in the wrong way when it came to being scientific and he made some very bad choices in the data collection. There were some people in the audience who were happy that they could see people having their hair shorn, but I don't think that was very accurate. I think the experiment was probably intended to expose the extreme cruelty of the experiment, but the results were all over the place. The Dutch psychologist did seem to make a good case that it is dangerous to be forced to play with animals, but he did not seem to make that case clearly enough. He was never clear about whether the experiment was a control group or whether the people were simply being used as the controls. I don't think it was clear enough. Another big problem with the experiment was the size of the monkeys and the dogs. I didn't really care for the monkeys either, but the dogs were very good at making sounds. I think it was a very realistic and humane experiment, but I don't think it was scientifically sound. The experiment seemed to me to have been designed with some different objectives than those of the people in the experiment. Overall, I do think the experiment was well done. The team was very passionate about making the experiment an effective test, and it was also very effective in showing how different people react to the treatment. But it was still a flawed experiment and I think the people in the experiment could have done a better job in communicating what they were doing to the people who were involved in the experiment.

I saw this film on BBC Two at the weekend. I didn't realise the content of it until I saw the "spoiler" warning. I suppose the point of the film is to educate viewers about some of the fundamental things about what goes on in the world today. There is not a lot of nudity in it, though there is a nice sequence of young girls modelling. We see them walking through the forest and talking to each other about the state of the world. If you're watching it for the nudity you might be disappointed. But if you want a film about how technology has brought the world into an era of unimaginable poverty, hopelessness and powerlessness, then you will not be disappointed. You can judge the film as a general commentary on the way in which technology is impacting on life on this planet. I thought it was interesting how people were able to record the images, while at the same time asking questions about what was going on. It's as if the film had a series of questions that it was trying to answer and it ended up being a series of answers. What's interesting is that the film is being shown in 3 parts. So if you go to watch the first part you are only left with the first half. If you go to watch the second part, you are left with a couple of questions that you would like to have answered. The third part is actually quite long, but its fascinating to see what the people have to say. They are interviewed by real people who say a lot of very strong things. For example, you hear the real thoughts of some people who live in the "city" and then you hear the thoughts of a different person who lives in a rural village. There is a lot of insight into the way in which technology is affecting the lives of many people and it is a fascinating film. I'm still pondering about what I saw. I don't think I would want to see the whole thing again as I'm just not sure what I'd like to learn from it.

One would have thought that one of the biggest parties to have a veto over a film would be that of the film's director. But this year, filmmakers have had the opportunity to veto the director of "Bottle Rocket," "Ice Age: Continental Drift," "Shrek 2," "Wall-E," and "Sausage Party." However, it is interesting to note the amount of power the filmmaker has when it comes to the filmmaker of this documentary. In this case, it is a young man named Christian "Choke" de Vries (aka "Thruthelf") who runs the Independent Film Channel. He is the younger brother of co-founder and CFO of the filmmaker, James P. "Wally" de Vries (aka "Clayton"). While not an entirely authentic story, the film demonstrates how the studios make a difference in film, especially when it comes to the younger generation who are the ones who are being targeted. "Bottle Rocket" was brought to our attention via TheCoffeeCoaster.com where the film had been touted for being a "Kids' Film." One would have expected that in regards to children, the film would have been a commercial success. Instead, it came under fire from many who felt that it was no different than other commercial films that have been made for adults. While this film was not a commercial success, we did hear a few positive things about the film from children of all ages. "Bottle Rocket" was certainly more than just a commercial success. It's surprising how much more people have grown to care about the story of children and the impact their films have on them. "Bottle Rocket" will be a worthwhile film for any adult who enjoys a film for its message and not for its effects on the human race. Even if you aren't a parent, "Bottle Rocket" is worth your time.

This is a nice documentary about the work of the Dutch painter Henk Bakker, one of the best painters in the history of the Dutch art scene. As well as offering a rare insight into his working process, this documentary has a decent cast: Frederik van Haeringen, Peter van der Ven, Gerrit Henckel and Ben Wore. Bakker was probably the last of the Dutch painters to be granted the right to have a full-time job. The documentary goes through his life from his childhood to his death in 1950. The documentary does not show all his work, but only a small amount. The documentary is also able to show the life of Bakker's wife, which was a very important part of his life. The documentary also contains a great deal of talk about his work, the different aspects and the range of his artistic abilities. But as well as the documentary, it also contains a great deal of interviews with other painters. I enjoyed the documentary, but had a couple of problems with it. The first problem is that the documentary is in Dutch, and since I don't speak Dutch, it can be hard to follow. The second problem is that the documentary, as well as the interviews, were just a little too long for my liking. There were times when Bakker's works were shown too quickly, without proper exposition, without enough time to analyze them. Also, Bakker's paintings were not shown very often. The interviewees were not only able to tell the story of Bakker's career, but also told a good story of their own. The documentary didn't need to be a longer documentary, just a little more on Bakker's work. There are other documentaries that tell the story of the Netherlands painter Cornelis Vermeer, but this one is more of a biography, where you can hear from Vermeer's contemporaries, some of his followers, some of his enemies and other people who were important in his life. And the fact that the documentary was translated from Dutch to English adds to the quality of the documentary. I believe that this documentary is a great and valuable insight into the life of one of the most interesting artists of the twentieth century.

This film is a documentary about a real man that just happens to be in the film. This is a highly relevant film. A man who has lived with the same malady for over 30 years and has been suffering with insomnia for the past four years. This is just another man, the world can't see him. He doesn't have a bank account, no money. And the only way to receive a diagnosis of the disease is to get a referral from a doctor. And as this man is under the age of 70, the doctor who has to sign off on the referral can have only a couple of years left on the job. The problem is that he has a lot of family and friends who care about him and want to help him. As the man's son, Nelissen has a lot of responsibility to take care of him. And because he's been through it all himself, he doesn't want to give up. But he also has to understand that his family and friends have to get used to living without him. The man who takes care of him is the one who, as his mother pointed out, is the most responsible. He has to realize that he's not going to be the one who saves his mother's life and he has to accept that. This is a great film, it's a documentary, it's a story, it's an intimate look at this man. And it's a documentary that has him in the midst of everything, as his illness affects him daily. He's told that the disease has gone into remission and he's told that the only way he'll be able to have it is if he passes the exam. This is a man with more than a few tricks up his sleeve. He has got his own business, he has a business card, he has a bank account. He has also had a romantic relationship with a woman that he's been living with for almost 30 years and he can't get over how much he wants to have her back. He is also frustrated that there are not enough treatments in the Netherlands, even though he has a doctor's appointment in two days. And finally, as a Dutchman himself, he feels the need to make sure that this man has the attention and the treatment that he needs and the very best of the best is in that doctor's office right now. As this man comes to know his son, who is now his son's age, he realizes that he has to be there for his son. But when he sees his son's friends, who are all about being able to have this disease, he realizes that he has to go back to his family, to his wife and to his mother and be there for him. He can't let his son suffer. He can't let him go without help. This is a man who is fighting for his life every step of the way. This is a man who has gotten to a point where he is in danger of becoming a womanizer and that's why he wants to have the disorder. It's a man who is a stand-up guy, he is a man who works hard, but he also has a heart and he understands that he has got to help his son in some way or another. He knows that it's going to be a long time before he can be able to do that and that's why he's fighting so hard. He doesn't want to lose him again, even though he's going to have to. The man has got this disease and he is fighting for his life, but he understands that he needs to do that. This is a great film, one that is both informative and entertaining. It's a documentary, a film that has a lot of emotion and it has a lot of humor. It's a film that has the man who has this disease, the man who is being treated for it, in the midst of everything. He is going to have a lot of things to deal with. It is a film that shows that people are able to deal with a lot of things and a lot of things have to be overcome. It is a film that is highly entertaining. It is a very important film and it is one that I strongly recommend.

This is a good film, as a documentary, but it is also a well-balanced and exciting account of a young man's involvement in the world of local Dutch pottery and local "hoppe". One would expect a bit of pretension, but the film mostly remains fair and fairly balanced. The film includes interviews with Dutch pottery professionals, with local Dutch people, and with Dutch people around the world. I particularly liked the part about the Netherlands where Dutch potters are still very much in demand, and where Dutch potters really take pride in their craft and are open about their profession. The Dutch are actually very welcoming in this respect. It's one thing to say that Dutch potters "like to be seen" as they are "seen" by their peers in the Dutch society, but it's another to say that Dutch potters are also "seen" by the rest of the world. I think that in a film about Dutch pottery, it is important to be objective about the Dutch potters in question, but to still be interesting and entertaining enough to attract people to watch the film. This is where I think this film really succeeds. It is interesting to see some of the Dutch potters tell their stories. The best part of the film is also the part where the Dutch potters tell their stories. I especially liked this part as it is quite authentic, even though it is rather exaggerated. And even if it is a bit over the top, it is still a good part of the film. I have been interested in Dutch pottery for a long time and this film made me want to learn more about Dutch pottery. This is a good film and the Dutch potter in the film did a good job at telling his story.

We tend to be too fixated on the language barrier between East and West that to try to overcome the language barrier can be seen as an intrusion and can be seen as an attempt to force one's beliefs upon others. For me, a thing to consider is to ask whether people are simply following what they believe to be the truth or whether they have a deeper understanding of the universe. I am not religious, nor am I an educated person, but the concept of God and the Bible is the most important thing that has shaped my views on life and what matters in life and therefore, it is one of the most important things that has shaped my views on life. I came across this movie, and I really think it is an important movie because it presents a very real life story and tries to show the situation of people who are trying to come to terms with something they believe to be true and the difficulties they face. At times, the movie is very realistic, but then at times it goes off the rails, and the movie becomes a bit too superficial. For example, when we see what is going on, people are changing their habits, they are changing their personal appearance, their clothing, even their behaviour and way of living. One man has a bicycle that is always covered in a red scarf, and he is constantly changing his behaviour. The point of view of the man who is trying to change his own way of life has to be taken into account because the movie is concerned with trying to change the way people see reality. I think the movie has to be taken into consideration on its own, and I think it is not that important for the religion, but for the way the movie portrays it. I don't think that it has to be a movie that shows the struggles of religion in order to understand the movie. It is just a movie that talks about life, and what the movie is about is to try and show the difficulties people are facing in the way they live their lives and to try and show that life is all about how you look at it.

A beautiful portrait of Dutch culture through the eyes of an artist from West Africa. To some, this documentary could be considered an expose on Dutch culture, but it is actually a compassionate and well-made portrait of Dutch people in Africa, as well as a diary of a Dutch artist who was working in Kinshasa, the capital of Democratic Republic of the Congo. It is also a positive portrayal of Dutch culture, not only with respect to the cultural differences between the Netherlands and the other nations of Africa, but also the understanding and tolerance that exists between people in different cultures. The documentary is narrated by a Dutch artist who has visited the Congo for the first time in thirty years, and is currently working in a museum in Kinshasa. The documentary shows his struggle to get by in his own country, his frustration at being in a place that is so different from him, and his joy and creativity while working in the museum. He is also influenced by the Dutch culture he comes in contact with. The Dutch culture that permeates in so many facets of Dutch life, from the simple things such as beer and krijgen in the beer garden to the subtle things such as a king's letter in a department store, and the Dutch culture that permeates the use of Krijgen and beer in Dutch society. The documentary's theme is really the beauty of Dutch culture, and it is not just about the Netherlands and the African people in Africa. The documentary also shows how Dutch people are well integrated into the culture and how they have successfully worked together with other cultures to co-exist peacefully. We see the Dutch attitude to everything that is different about the African people, and how they are able to adapt to the different cultures and customs of different countries. The Dutch are able to deal with the different cultures of other countries, and even to help the people of another country with the Dutch culture in order to improve the culture of their own country. The Dutch culture is such a source of inspiration, and the Dutch people are so kind and accommodating in their efforts to share their culture with others. This documentary is a warm and humane story of Dutch people in Africa, showing that Dutch people do care and work for the happiness of the people of other countries.
