The Tree Of Life

DVD Verdict
10 October 2011
  • Excerpt: The differing reactions to The Tree of Life at the Cannes Film Festival offer a perfect example of the polarizing views Terence Malick's ( Badlands ) latest feature seems to draw. Despite being met by boos from audiences, the film still went on to win the Palme d'Or. The death of his brother forces Jack O'Brien (Sean Penn, Milk ) to confront his past, which is dominated by his difficult relationship with his father, which in turn offers him a chance to get his own life...

Movie Review: The Tree of Life

thelmadams.com
4 June 2011
  • Excerpt: A serious Brad Pitt captivates as a father of three boys in 1950s Texas, but he’s one of the few good things in this confusing (if gorgeous) art film. The drama shifts jarringly from Pitt’s suburban family saga to — huh? — a history of the Earth from the Big Bang to the age of dinosaurs and up to the present. The movie’s muddled point? To explore and understand the roots of creation.

The Tree of Life

Not Coming
27 May 2011
  • Excerpt: It seems strange to note that Terrence Malick’s fifth feature, The Tree of Life , is the first of his films to be constructed around flashbacks. In a sense, all of his films recreate and reassemble the hazy, fleeting snapshots of recollection, sudden blazes of light, offhand snatches of conversation, and the delicate movements of bodies and landscapes.

Expert Review

FILMDUDE
30 June 2011
  • Excerpt: The on-screen experience is profound while managing to be tiresomely pretentious at the same time. "Tree of Life" takes itself a little too seriously at times, boldly exploring beginnings, creation, and dinosaurs. It is also a gentle reflection on life and the relationships of children with their parents, navigated in a non-linear manner.

The Tree of Life

Nöjesguiden
20 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Det är amerikanskt femtiotal. Brad Pitt spelar ett auktoritärt arsle till pappa som inte vill se några jävla armbågar på bordet. Militär bakgrund, klappar sina barn lite för hårt. Familjen går i kyrkan.

The Tree Of Life

P3
31 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Regissør Terrence Malick har skapt et eksepsjonelt filmverk om fedre, mødre, sønner, oppvekst, oppdragelse, kjærlighet, liv, død og tap av uskyld. The Tree Of Life stiller store spørsmål, men svarene må du i stor grad finne selv. Filmens tilgjengelighet er nok en smule begrenset, på grunn av et svulstig filmspråk og svevende fortellerteknikk. Men om du er beredt til å ta i mot, vil du få en rik kinoopplevelse.

  • Excerpt: Dertig jaar zou Terrence Malick aan the tree of life gewerkt hebben. Hij kreeg er meteen een Gouden Palm voor, maar waarschijnlijk kan dat de filosoof-filmmaker weinig schelen.

The tree of life

tros kompas
19 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Ambitie kan regisseur Terrence Malick niet ontzegd worden. In ‘The tree of life’ gebruikt hij het opgroeien van één mens als symbool voor de geschiedenis van de aarde. Daarom zit er tussen het levensverhaal van Jack (Hunter McCracken) een lang intermezzo over het ontstaan van de aarde, compleet met vuurzeeën en dino’s.

  • Excerpt: Gewoon een goed drama met Brad Pitt, dat is de verwachting. Maar The Tree of Life voldoet niet aan de verwachtingen. De film is totaal anders. Het duurt even voordat deze filosofische film je grijpt en hij vraagt om enige fantasie, maar zit vol prachtige details.
