L’arbre et la forêt (2010)

A person thrown during the war in a concentration camp because of its sexual preferences. The pressure from society forcing him to live a lie for decades. The ever going struggle between the inner self (L’arbre, i.e the tree) and what society (la forêt, i.e. the forrest) expects one to be: within its norms. A family which has felt the impact of these events in a multitude of ways.

In “L’arbre et la forêt“, acting is good, characters are convincing, the story is good. It has a non-trivial message to convey. However, given the story of  it could have been much better.
