AIn an intriguing way “a BLOOMING BUSINESS” shows the world of Jane, Oscar and Kennedy, who all depend somehow on the huge flower farms in Naivasha, Kenya. A poetic, cinematic and poignant documentary, in which director Ton van Zantvoort goes deep into the lives of the main characters. Is the smell of the imported rose so sweet indeed?
