Agnes throws Atli out and does not want him to see their daughter Ása anymore. He moves in with his parents, who are involved in a bitter dispute over their big and beautiful tree that casts a shadow on the neighbours' deck.

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

What the film occasionally lacks in human finesse, it makes up for in sheer anything-goes resolve.

Each character resonates as a problematic individual whose foolishness escalates first into drama, then tragedy.

How dark is too dark? Iceland's "Under the Tree" pushes the envelope with a pitch-black tale of a neighborly squabble that gets more and more violent. Problem is, it gets less and less funny, too.

The trajectory is never really convincing. (Ron Burgundy might opine that things escalate a bit too quickly.)

November 17, 2017 | Full Review…

The tone is deliberately odd ... blending the naturalism of the day-to-day emotions of relationships and grief, with the altogether more heightened tensions of a revenge thriller, while still keeping a cheeky eye on the absurdity of a mooning garden gnome

Unsettlingly perceptive as well as absurdly comedic, Under the Tree chronicles domestic tensions left to fester; when grudges branch out like a leafy tree in a suburban backyard, everyone suffers.
