A family and intimate drama with dyes of ecological fable that serves as a metaphor for the economic dynamics in the European Union and its impact on the citizens. [Full review in Spanish]
Audience Reviews for The Olive Tree (El olivo)
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.
