Movie Info

UNDER THE TREE follows a man who is accused of adultery and forced to move in with his parents. While he fights for custody of his four-year-old daughter, he is gradually sucked into a dispute between his parents and their neighbors over an old and beautiful tree. What starts as a typical spat between suburban neighbors unexpectedly and violently reaches a boiling point, soon spiraling out of control.


Critic Reviews for Under the Tree (Undir trénu)

Hafsteinn Sigurðsson's film begins as a trifling neighborhood dispute about an overgrown shade tree and ends as a violent tug-of-war with alarmingly high stakes.

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
