The Tree tells a story of a family trapped in their home in the middle of a wide-open country, of life in the middle of emptiness, which could end and should be revealed. The film is divided into tree parts, and every part focuses on one of the characters, exploring how each of them deals with the situation. Between the imagination of little Veli, the struggles of mother Milena and the dilemmas of teenage boy Alek, the story reveals how absurd this reality is and what Alek feels has to be done.

Lik Aleka v filmu DREVO je tenkočuten prikaz odraščanja v krutem okolju, kjer fant svojo transformacijo v moškega plača z življenjem.

Slovenian Film Critics' Award
critic's choice
2014

Članice žirije FIPRESCI, ki smo tokrat izbirale med celovečernimi igranimi filmi, smo sklenile, da nagrado podelimo delu, ki ga ne odlikujeta samo drzna izbira motiva in njegova simbolna razsežnost, temveč tudi odlična izvedba filmske pripovedi na vseh ravneh –tako režije kot igre, fotografije, scenografije in glasbe. Nagrado FIPRESCI poklanjamo filmu Drevo.

Vesna Award
best music/score
2014

Glasbi v filmu DREVO s premišljeno umestitvijo v dramaturgijo zgodbe uspe v filmsko pripoved vpeljati gosto in kompleksno glasbeno pokrajino, ki postane notranji svet glavnih junakov, spomin na nepovraten čas brez strahu.
