review

The Olive Tree

Alma (Anna Castillo) is one of three cousins who constitute the youngest generation in a close, yet slightly dysfunctional family of chicken farmers in the Spanish province of Castellon. But they didn’t always have a penchant for poultry; once, the family business was far more romantic, as they lovingly harvested plump olives from the ancestral grove of olive trees. Alma has cosy memories of the oldest of the trees, where her grandfather (Manual Cucala) taught her to graft new trees and she recalls her childhood imagination seeing a monster’s face in the 2,000 year old heirloom. Her fondness for her grandfather extended to the beautifully ancient tree, as Grandfather himself imparted his own appreciation for the oldest family member, in his eyes. But economic crises led to the family selling the tree, against eight-year-old Alma’s and Grandfather’s wishes, to fund a new project. When the latter is reaching the end of his life, Alma sets out to find the tree, hoping to rekindle a zest for life in her beloved Grandfather.
