I bought this video after the death of my father who was born into a very poor family in northeastern Italy. Watching it was a poignant experience. The hardships of peasant life at the turn of the century are realistically portrayed. Also portrayed are the strong bonds of faith and love that unite a family whatever hardships life may bring. One of the story strands follows a pair of young sweethearts who have become parents in an unusual way by the end of the film. It is enchanting. All in all a moving true to life film that brought tears and smiles as it evoked the memory of the stories Papa told us. American audiences may be impatient with length and slow pace of this film, but it is well worth the time spent.

I found the movie very boring-not something I would want to watch again. (Unless I suffered insomnia-it's a great sleep inducer, especially if you seen it once before.) I wondered how on earth did it win any movie prize. Fragmented and terribly lengthy (now I seen other movies three hours long and the time went quickly), I found myself wondering what the story was about from time to time. I know overall it was about the oppressive landlord, but going from family to family was confusing to me. I felt sorry for the pig that got slaughtered in the beginning. And the scenes were gorgeous.

Exceptionally moving. Demonstrates that 'modesty' can communicate far, far more powerfully than most of those 'big' ambitious narratives do. 'Tree...' shares meanings by sensitively observing small things. Deserves to be far better known. Incidentally, Olmi (the director) has a superb talent for using the right music in the right places. 'The Legend of the Holy Drinker' (Olmi's film-adaptation from a story by Joseph Roth) is another superb example of the way in which music can (in Olmi's hands) tease out the most subtle of moods.

The tree of Wooden Clogs is an interesting film, which shows peasant life from the upper Po River Valley just before the end of the 19th Century. The 3 hour film tends to be a bit slow by today's expectations, but it graphically depicts life for the sharecropper family, and shows how life was at the mercy of the landlord. The filmmaker graphicly shows the slaughtering of several animals, so be prepared for this. Overall, I liked the film for its anthropological virtues.
