Critic Reviews for Red Trees
The sad truth is that we've heard countless harrowing stories of the Holocaust, and this one, for the most part, isn't presented in a way that makes it indelible or urgent.
Cinematically and emotionally it's a mixed bag, a slow-moving visual treatise and occasional vanity piece that requires - but doesn't always earn - our indulgence.
In the end, this relentlessly scenic travelogue/valentine is Willer literally giving her old man peace of mind.
With Red Trees, Marina Willer does something both intimate and daring. Its vivid shots ensure the entire film plays out like a series of moving paintings.
Not just a story of survival, it is a statement about the values of a family that were not only considered anathema to the Nazis but to the alt-right of today. In many ways, this is the most powerful anti-fascist film you will see this or any other year.
