The Olive Tree (2016; Spanish/German, subtitled)
Dir Icíar Bollaín (Spain/Germany) 1hr 40mins. Colour; 15
A young woman decides to rescue her grandfather’s olive tree, sold to a German company as a green symbol, in Icíar Bollaín’s (Even the Rain) low-key, sweet-natured, heartfelt film. Commentary on a changing Europe – and especially a socially and economically forlorn Spain – underpins The Olive Tree, but the human relationships are most poignant here, especially the one between Alma and her ailing grandfather.(Guardian; Timeout)
