Well. What can you say? After I saw this film I needed some time to let it sink in. You can't deny that this is a very ambitious film from Terrence Malick. He's gone crazy, and by doing so he has created a film about life, creation, destruction, mercy and by how yo... read more

A very good movie

I have been waiting to see this movie for maybe 2 years and I definitely had some big expectations. Honestly, I can't say it was as good as I expected but it was still a very good picture.

Description: From Terrence Malick, the acclaimed director of such classic films as Badlands, Days of Heaven and The Thin Red Line, The Tree of Life is the impressionistic story of a Midwestern family in the 1950's. The film follows the life journey of the eldest son, Jack, through the innocence of childhood to his disillusioned adult years as he tries to reconcile a complicated relationship with his father (Brad Pitt). Jack (played as an adult by Sean Penn) finds himself a lost soul in the modern world, seeking answers to the origins and meaning of life while questioning the existence of faith. Through Malick's signature imagery, we see how ... (more)

The Best Films of 2010s (50 movies items)

" The Tree of Life is definitely something massive. The way that film handles death, the existentialism, the family relationships, hallow importance of religions, nature and the modern society is something that only director like Terrence Malick can put up together. And as it's typical for Malick's films, the cinematography is once again on its own level. One of the most personal films by Malick, but also one of his films that touches me personally the most. Malick has a unique talent of shoo"
