Two Ways Through Life – The Tree of Life Film Enthusiast Blog

Welcome to my blog – dedicated to one of the greatest achievements in film – The Tree of Life.

Director Terrence Malick premiered the film at the Cannes Film Festival in 2011 where it was awarded the Palme d’Or, the highest prize given at the festival and considered by many to be the most prestigious honor in film. 

From the moment that I first witnessed this film, I was drawn to it like no other film that I had ever seen before. Memories of my childhood stirred while I also found new perspective and understanding in life. Not only did I reflect on my younger years, but as a father I have sought to better understand Mr. O’Brien’s internal struggles and how he indeed was a man with many layers. 

The Tree of Life is a reminder of the importance of noticing the glory around us. I hope that this blog will allow you to dive deeper into what  The Tree of Life means to you.
