A decent independent short, beautifully shot.
4 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tree was a really interesting little movie. Some of the most beautiful photography I have ever seen in an independent short. Excellent use of depth of field and color. Performances were also generally very good, especially from a child actress. A very chilling sound track. Some things that could have improved: The story seemed a bit confusing. I was unsure why characters were doing what they were doing a lot of the time. Also, the characters themselves seemed a little stereotypical. (i.e. the wife who wants to win a baking contest, the cute little girl, etc...). It would have been better to make the characters more unique and give them more depth. Finally, At one point the girl calls the tree and oak tree. From what I could see it was a walnut or butternut (okay, that's really just a dorky critique). Overall, though good work.
