Storyline

The O'Neills lived happily in their house in the Australian countryside. That was until one day fate struck blindly, taking the life of Peter, the father, leaving his grief-stricken wife Dawn alone with their four children. Among them, eight-year-old Simone denies this reality. She is persuaded that her father still lives in the giant fig tree growing near their house and speaks to her through its leaves. But the tree becomes more and more invasive and threatens the house. It must be felled. Of course, Simone won't allow... Written by Guy Bellinger

Beautiful, touching and warm
10 July 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I just finished watching The Tree, and I can not describe the feeling that I have.

This was truly a beautiful film, so touching and heartfelt. If you are expecting a tear jerking drama, then The Tree will not deliver what you want. The Tree has its sad moments, but it more focus's on the happier moments. The acting is very well done, the cinematography is stunning and the musical score is brilliant. Also, Morgana Davies is adorable! I can't wait to see how far she goes.

I highly suggest you sit down and watch the tree, it will give you a very warm feeling inside! 9/10
