Bertucelli's "The Tree" holds a certain allure that it mainly attains by it's mesmerizing pictures and strong symbolism. Storyline and character drawing fall behind and seem slightly shallow at times. A careful and fascinating exploration of loss and love.
A bit better than a TV movie but not that much. Through the worship of their lost husband/father a mother & daughter dig deeper into problems. A ton of feminist clichés & an annoying & unrealistic script. === A peine mieux qu'un téléfilm. Au travers du culte du mari/père disparu, une mère et sa fille s'enfoncent dans les problèmes. Une tonne de clichés féministes & un scénario aussi agaçant qu'irréaliste.
It's a nice movie about a family and about life. I liked the character of Dawn and sure, the acting of Charlotte (like always). I just felt it created atmosphere through cliche means (slow tree shots all the time, dreamy music, a hint of magic...) that are just too easy to use. Without them the story itself wouldn't made the test.
The story is no big deal, but at least it's not as lame as it sounds. That little girl Morgana Davies is amazing, but the rest of the cast seems to be on autopilot, including Mrs. Gainsbourg. All in all, a nice family movie for the weekend.
Una Joya .... sin palabras por esta increible pelicula .....
Gainsbourg hizo una actuacion giuly pero mas que todo es el la fotografia el paisaje , la relacion de los niños ...Una de las peliculas sobre la familia mas increibles que e visto ...Giiuly
A Árvore não é lá um filme memorável, mas faz direitinho tudo aquilo que dele se espera. Charlotte Gainsbourg está ótima, embora longe de repetir a genialidade e a entrega de Anticristo. Isso acaba sendo positivo, porém, por ser essa uma obra menor. Há vários acertos na fotografia e na trilha.
