Review: The Tree

The Tree

Stars: Charlotte Gainsbourg, Morgana Davies, Marton Csokas | Written and Directed by Julie Bertuccelli

One Day, One Life, Life in a Day, A Better Life, The Tree of Life and now, simply The Tree. That’s a whole load of movies released over a short space of time with pretty similar titles. Is anyone else getting confused?
