Movie Info

Italian filmmaker Ermanno Olmi's Tree of the Wooden Clogs covers a period of twelve months, dividing its time between three peasant families, all of whom work on the estate of an all-but-absentee landlord.

Audience Reviews for The Tree of Wooden Clogs (L'albero degli Zoccoli)

  • Mar 24, 2010
    Magnificent and all embracing neorealist work of art, being directly inspired by the classic Italian masters and applying, at the same time, visual beauty of tremendous emotional weight almost worth of a Tarkovsky or an Angelopoulos masterpiece. Olmi shows, through his inspirational scope and an almighty musical score, the most realistic and invigorating depiction of peasant poverty, a rare human breed that shows an immense passion for life and independence of God, perhaps not in the way it is supposed to be, yet managing to incarnate humankind's universality and fortitude of the spirit, like if the soul and Nature itself were merged into one single entity of life idealization. 100/100

    Sometimes,you don't need none but the amateur's heart.Olmi's glorifying tenderness qualifies his ability to show reality as a glass of water:he embodies Nature as the God of agricultural loneliness(and poverty).Goddess to be precise...
