Film Review by Allen Henriquez

This Beautiful Fantastic (2017)

 

Director: Simon Aboud

Cast: Jessica Brown Findlay, Tom Wilkinson, Andrew Scott, Eileen Davies, Anna Chancellor

 

Bella Brown: a young woman, writing a children’s book, but raised in an orphanage, is a brilliant person, who suffers from obsessive compulsive disorder. Bella lives in London and works, with extremely high mental capacity, at a library, however her employment is unstable because of her continual late arrival for the job. The additional problem bombarding her is the landlord’s unscheduled arrival to give Bella notice that the garden in her yard space is in abysmal disrepair, and if not resolved, will result in her removal.

Albie Stephenson, a horticulturist, and Bella’s angry, antisocial neighbor, becomes a positive element in her dilemma. Alfie along with his assistant Vernon, come to Bella’s rescue.

The central element of the story is the love of botany expressed and displayed by the angry neighbor Alfie. The great beauty, unveiled in concert with the neighbor’s love for flowers and plant life reveals the hopeful, and euphoric, inner meaning to the story. The paradise of this existence is very much in our presence internally and externally. This Beautiful Fantastic, does in an intelligent way remind us.
