Tree of Life is a richly evocative story of a Texas family in the 1950s. We follow the evolution of the eldest of the three children who is faced with a loss of innocence.
This is a strikingly original movie with a scope that stretches beyond infinity. Call it a sprawling bore, a pretentious nonsense or accuse even more derogatorily. But for me, and everyone like me, The Tree of Life is a beautifully painted art and an adroitly crafted poem of a film. As abstract as it would seem to be initially, and it certainly is, it is also as much moral and virtuous as a deeply profound and honest movie would ever be. And as it is that the best isn't, this movie is also not for everyone but the art-house cinema lovers.
