The Tree of Life – An experimental Art Film

Public Rating

It is an experimental movie which combines too many visuals from the universe as well as the plot. It resembles with an exhibition of photography or painting because we can see that a mixture of art forms which comes with random visuals from the beautiful world and concentrating an American family.

The movie released in 2011 and the cast are Brad Pit, Sean Pen and Jessica Chastain

Spoiler Alert

The movie connects the relationship with the son and father and at the end, it shows that the elder one resembles his father in all aspects. Also, the story conveys the loss of a kid from their family in a deep way. The film shows a decent mother and frustrated father and the flow of that frustrations to the kids. At the end, it shows that the father character which portrayed by Brad Pit confess his struggle to his elder son.

I felt like the director or the story writer wants to show that the elder one got the big impact of the loss of his brother by showing some sequences with his brother in which the younger one doesn’t behave like a crazy kid. At the end the mother (Jessica Chastain portrayed it beautifully) allows the angels to take her son to the heaven.


There were three boys comes with the family and in between, I lost one boy character, may be the director want it like that too!


I like to give 70 out of 100 for the movie it is a must watch and recommended to watch in a peaceful mood.
