The film has gentleness and charm.
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.
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.
Icíar Bollaín's The Olive Tree is a familial drama whose meandering tone and rather glib message mean that it never truly takes root.
It is a deceptively well written film, with sly humour and well-earned pathos breaking out all over the show.
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]
[A] charming but purposeful community drama that wears its heart on its sleeve while discussing broader themes.
Painfully well meaning at times, this road movie would work better if some of the worthiness was pruned and if the tree-thieving was not quite so patently ludicrous.
The film has such charm and promotes such good... The phrase is "heartwarming" I believe.
While this heartfelt dramedy is never less than engaging, Bollain and Laverty's conviction that idealistic youth can haul society back from the abyss sadly feels a touch naive.
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.
