Terrence Malick, U.S. director Terrence Malick brings his long-awaited drama “Tree of Life” to the Cannes Film Festival on Monday, ending a long waits for moviegoers and critics intrigued by only his fifth feature film.
The image has been the most talked about of the 20 entries in the main competition at Cannes and its world premiere brings stars like Brad Pitt and Sean Penn’s famous red carpet at the Riviera palm trees.
It also marks the midpoint of this year’s festival, where many critics argue that the glitz and glamor has not been matched by the quality of the films in competition.
They are the hope of a lift Malick, who famously took 20 years between his second picture “Days of Heaven” in 1978 and the third “The Thin Red Line” in 1998.
That movie, also starring Penn, won his only Oscar nomination for writing and directing, even though it is one of the most respected filmmakers U.S. active.
Secrecy surrounding the tree of life, and aversion to the kind of advertising Malick most filmmakers aspire, have given an almost mythical status among film buffs, and trailers and the official synopsis of giving little away.
The synopsis called The Tree of Life an “impressionistic story of a midwestern family in the 1950′s.”
We follow Jack, played by Penn, as he navigates his childhood and adult disillusioned and seeking answers to big questions of life.
