Goes too far over the top! - Under the Tree review by TE

Spoiler Alert
06/03/2019

Sometimes less is more, and this film demonstrates that fact.

The story is well paced and carefully constructed, but it loses focus in the final section when savage mayhem erupts.

There is a rich vein of very dark humour in the film, but there's also a lack of identity. Is it a dark comedy or is it a tragedy? It is both, but the two do not blend well enough.
