Exclusive Clip From The Tree

_It's tree-mendous_ The Tree's Charlotte Gainsbourg is doing it tough at the moment. First she accompanies Lars von Trier into the dark woods for a close encounter with a talking fox and a borderline deranged Willem Dafoe in Antichrist. Next up, she's back with the Dane to await the end of the world in Melancholia. Between times, she's got a lot on her plate in her new Australian melodrama. As this clip from The Tree shows, Gainsbourg's young widow Dawn has been left to cope with the extremes of life in the Queensland bush after her husband dies of a heart attack. The soul of her dead partner is, she believes, absorbed into the mighty Moreton Bay Fig tree in their yard, something she takes solace in. . In this case the extreme is only a killer storm, though if our comprehensive knowledge of Australian botany teaches us one thing, it's only a matter of time before she and her brood are set upon by a high-speed landcrocs, knife-wielding dingos and flying death adders. This is not a place for the faint of heart. The Tree, warmly received in Cannes, is directed by French filmmaker Julie Bertuccelli, a one-time AD to Krzysztof Kieslowski. It's out is out on August 5. * apologies for that pun. We momentarily took leaf of our sense [1] [2] [3] Links: ------ [1] [2] [3]
