L'ARBRE ET LA FORET / FAMILY TREE

Hidden secrets and untold truths are the true heir of each family. Skeletons filled drawers open
wide in Ducastel/Martineau's film just to enlighten a story not only about relationships of an
upper class house but of a whole country as well. When a family's father figure refuses to
attend his first born son's funeral the seemingly tranquil family collapses and truth surfaces.
The absence from his son's grave leads to revalations associated with world war 2 and the real
reasons the hero was put in war camp by the nazis. Based on a true story that changed the way
the French face their past, the film analyzes how history is written through an inspired script that
helps the actors shine.
