This lyrical and mystical Australian-French co-production is a story of inspirational hope thatís set in the very real landscape of rural Queensland.

8 year old Simoneís world is violently rocked by the sudden death of her father (Aden Young). Her mother, the ever captivating Charlotte Gainsbourg, is unable to cope and the children donít seem to be able to get through to her. Left to her own devices Simone believes her fatherís spirit lives on in the beautiful bay fig tree that towers over their house and threatens to demolish it. Reason dictates that the tree should be felled but at the risk of breaking Simoneís heart. 

The closing night film of Cannes 2010, The Treeís poignancy is compounded by superb lead performances.

Australia/France 2010 Dir. Julie Bertucelli 100 min.
