GLC: El Olivo/The Olive Tree

 

Spanish woman refuses to let the past die in Iciar Bollain's seventh feature.

A deceptively simple drama about a family and its thousand-year-old olive tree that is rooted in the best cinematic soil there is - emotional truth - The Olive Tree gets its hooks in early on, and then never lets up. Combining social criticism with a deeply human story about the broken and unbroken bonds between generations, this yarn about a young Spanish woman's literal and spiritual quest to recover a symbolically significant olive tree from its new corporate owners is, like the best work of Bollain, co-scriptwriter Paul Laverty and their colleague and mentor Ken Loach, cinema that cares and wants to make the world better. In Spain at least, sadly it's an increasingly rare subgenre.

In Spanish with English subtitles, 100 mins.
