All Critics (25) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (22) | Rotten (3)

  • This is a small, soulful film that has two stars: the feisty Spanish actress Anna Castillo and a vast, gnarled, thousand-year-old olive tree.

  • Commentary on a changing Europe underpins 'The Olive Tree', but the human relationships are most poignant here.

  • A deceptively simple drama about a family and its thousand-year-old olive tree that is rooted in the best cinematic soil there is -- emotional truth -- The Olive Tree gets its hooks in early on, and then never lets up.

    February 27, 2017 | Full Review…
  • An earthy, quietly stirring Spanish fable that finds familial, regional and environmental grievances inseparably tangled in its branches.

  • The trigger is a minor incident that triggers major significance and The Olive Tree ends as a joyful, life-affirming film that shows the power of personal conviction and positive action.

Audience Reviews for The Olive Tree (El olivo)

  • Sep 06, 2016
    It is not always subtle when it comes to its drama and has an easy ending that makes it feel like it lacks something as a character study, but it compensates for that with a lot of heart, honesty and an intense performance by Anna Castillo to make it definitely worth it.
