Title: The Tree Director: Julie Bertucelli Starring: Charlotte Gainsbourg, Morgana Davies, Marton Csokas, Aden Young, Gillian Jones, Penne Hackforth-Jones, Christian Bayers, Tom Russell, Gabriel Gotting, Zoe Boe A tender, well sketched drama of familial reconnection and rebirth in the wake of tragedy, Julie Bertucelli’s The Tree, a French-Australian co-production set in the rural environs of the latter country, for the most part successfully balances the literal and metaphorical in its telling of coping with loss, and trying to move on after the death of a loved one.

I mean come on – dinosaurs!).

For the record, I liked The Tree of Life and I also kind of like this film. It focuses on a family in the wake of the father (Aden Young)’s death. »
