Saturday Night Cine Club - Under the Tree

Saturday, July 28, 2018 @ 7:30pm
Theatre Charlotte
Presented by Charlotte Film Society

The Icelandic black comedy Under the Tree takes Sayre's law to its natural conclusion. In fact, the word "comedy" doesn't really apply to Hafsteinn Gunnar SigurĂ°sson's mirthless dissection of neighborly discord; the laughs are strictly of the stuck-in-the-throat variety, tied to the acknowledgement of grim ironies or absurd truths about human behavior. Here, a fight over an untrimmed tree exposes the roots of deeper problems within each home, including troubled marriages, an unexplained death in the family, and simmering jealousies and resentments. SigurĂ°sson is attuned to how conflicts can escalate from the tiniest infraction and he sees this one through to a conclusion that's as shocking as it is coldly logical.

Daniel Biber, retired clinical psychologist and retired Associate Professor of Psychology at Queens University, will lead a discussion after the screening.

Run time: 89 minutes
