"You can observe a lot just by watching"
I'm still tearing from this trailer for The Tree...not sure if I can actually get through this one...it seems to hold a particular meaning for me. Thanks so much for sharing.
Sometimes the most painful things bring the biggest lessons in life.My wife's father,John (see photo on sidebar)passed away,exactly one week after I saw this film (my wife couldn't make the screening),like the father in the film - from an unexpected heart attack,right out of the blue.This film was also filmed about 100 miles from where I live,and the young girl in the movie,looks just like my sister's daughter (and a little bit like my wife did at that age,come to think of it).There are so many "coincidences" surrounding this film and my life,that is literally not funny.-)But no matter how painful it might be,I still recommend watching it...even if you have to use a few boxes of tissues,to get you through it.
I've never heard of this, but my God, what a wonderful and powerful trailer. Onto my list it goes. Has it been released in Australia yet??Trish
I'm going to post this, too! Thanks, Daz. You have fabulous taste in movies - and books!
Re:"Has it been released in Australia yet?"I saw it in October.I had a free double pass from Filmink Magazine http://www.filmink.com.au/(the same magazine that I won the "Signs" watch from years ago).I wanted to take my wife along,but she couldn't make the screening that weekend,so I gave it to my mother and brother,and I just went along and paid admission at another cinema,that was screening it.My wife hasn't seen it yet,but I think she would really like it.Under the circumstances of her father's death,though,she may just find it way too painful to view.It's going to be released on DVD here,soon.So I will buy a copy,and one day she can sit down with a box of tissues and watch it by herself,and have a good cry.It will probably do her more good than harm,I think.I wrote a post about it here;http://brizdazz.blogspot.com/2011/03/tree.html...but you must have forgotten.-)Anyway,keep an eye out for it,because it is well worth a watch,especially since the cyclone that hit us around Christmas.It was almost prophetic in all so many ways.Magical film!
