    It's simply a pleasant movie. Simone, the 8-year-old daughter is a true find. She convinces herself she's happy after her father dies, but when she connects with her late father through the massive tree on her family's property, she defends it to the end with conviction. Charlotte Gainsborgh is always great, but she's a little too "spacey" in this one. It's worth seeing, but moderate your expectations. Expand

    Pacing problems and shallow psychological inquiries plague this film almost as much as the overworked metaphor that supplies the film's title.

    The Tree might have suffered from too much symbolism if not for writer-director Julie Bertuccelli's deft touch and Gainsbourg's appealing performance.

    Despite the potential for some supernatural grandiosity, the tone here remains understated and quiet, and Gainsbourg's performance feels lived-in, and deep, and right.
