The main character in this spectacular film is a giant, old oak tree. In other important roles, you’ll find squirrels, mice, woodpeckers, owls, deer, and other creatures.
A 210-year-old oak tree situated in the heart of the woods in Sologne, France. Join us as we venture into this small, yet incredibly rich and vital universe, where the oak houses, protects and feeds its many tenants. Let yourself be entertained by this mesmerizing glimpse into the complex interplay of the natural world.
Documenting this microcosm through four seasons and a series of big and small events, the filmmakers have created an irresistibly charming nature documentary that will spellbind audiences big and small. The film has no (human) dialogue. Already a favorite for both audiences and critics.
Laurent Charbonnier (b. 1958) is a french cinematographer and nature documentary director, who had the original idea for this film. Michel Seydoux (b. 1947) is a french producer, also known for working with Alejandro Jodorowsky on an adaption of Dune that never made it to the big screen.
