Critic Reviews for The Olive Tree
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.
An earthy, quietly stirring Spanish fable that finds familial, regional and environmental grievances inseparably tangled in its branches.
Audience Reviews for The Olive Tree
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.
