Nice Short with some fine acting
14 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

I liked Tree. The production was fairly sophisticated for what appears to be limited resources. I thought the performances were by and large very nice. Always difficult to get good performances out of children as well. Settings and locations were nicely chosen and photographed.

I have two criticisms that detracted somewhat from my overall enjoyment of the film. The first is a longer-than-necessary run time. My personal feeling is that this dogs many an Indy film. I think judicious editing could have kept me more engaged in the story, which, while interesting, is not nuanced enough to deserve a long running time.. The second is the too-dark night shots, which again I see in many low-budget films. A couple of well-placed lights with cookies can do wonders to create a night-time mood, instead of just black/grey, low-contrast darkness filling the frame.

But a commendable effort all in all.
