Cast: Brad Pitt, Jessica Chastain, Sean Penn, Fiona Shaw, Crystal Mantecon, Tamara Jolaine, Joanna Going, Jackson Hurst
From Terrence Malick, the acclaimed director of such classic films as "Badlands", "Days of Heaven" and "The Thin Red Line", "The Tree of Life" is the impressionistic story of a Midwestern family in the 1950's. The film follows the life journey of the eldest son, Jack, through the innocence of childhood to his disillusioned adult years as he tries to reconcile a complicated relationship with his father (Brad Pitt). Jack (played as an adult by Sean Penn) finds himself a lost soul in the modern world, seeking answers to the origins and meaning of life while questioning the existence of faith. Through Malick's signature imagery, we see how both brute nature and spiritual grace shape not only our lives as individuals and families, but all life.

1940s Poland: Middle class pianist Joanna (Urszula Grabowska, who received several best actress awards for the role) goes to church to pray for news of her husband at the front. But she stumbles across petrified eight-year-old Jewish girl, Rose, who has somehow managed to evade the Nazis who captured her mother. Joanna decides to hide Rose in her flat, but finds herself faced with tough decisions as her neighbours become suspicious and it is increasingly unclear who can be trusted. Matters complicate further when she falls victim to a denunciation, and must contend with the romantic advances of a Nazi officer (Joachim Paul Assböck).
Veteran director Feliks Falk draws a commanding performance from his cast, not least from Sara Knothe who plays the young Rose and Piotr Śliskowski's cinematography is stark and elegant, helping to convey the tragic power of this drama about righteous gentiles. Dan Susman
Directed by Andrei Zvyagintsev, Elena is a complete Russian Family Drama, on @ Film Harvest '12 - Bangalore's International Film Festival.8
by PalaceFilms 14,021 views
Palace Films proudly presents the highly anticipated new film by Andrey Zvyagintsev (THE RETURN).
Elena (the phenomenal Nadezhda Markina) has a warm but passionless late-in-life marriage with wealthy Vladimir, to whom she is more caretaker than spouse. Each has grown children from previous relationships, but Vladimir is dedicated to his distant, spoiled daughter and resents having to provide financial aid to Elena's hapless, unemployed son and his struggling family. As Vladimir's health declines, and he makes concrete plans to leave everything to his own offspring, Elena must decide swiftly between her loyalty to her husband and her allegiance to her own flesh and blood.
Part domestic thriller, part morality play, all a comment on contemporary Russian class warfare, Elena delivers an intense and haunting experience, offering keen insight into human nature. Throughout, the chilling tension is sustained and heightened by Philip Glass's striking score and Zvyagintsev's stark visual style.
