We had the chance to catch the film at last year’s Festival Du Nouveau Cinema, and we were all fans. Our very own Justine Smith wrote in her review that it was a “fine showcase for some great performances”.
Here is the official plot synopsis for the film:
In Australia, Dawn and Peter live happily with their four children in the shade of giant fig tree. When Peter dies suddenly, everyone reacts in its own way. Simone, the 8 years old daughter, believes that her father now lives in the tree. One day she introduces Dawn to her secret… Slowly, Dawn gets her strength back, she finds work. Maybe a new love? Life continues, but the tree is invading: its branches, roots, and even frogs and bats are assaulting the house and threatening its very foundations! Dawn has no choice: it must be cut down…
L’Arbre stars Charlotte Gainsbourg, Morgana Davies and Marton Csokas.
Here is the trailer. Good luck!
