V mediteranski atmosferi Rajase v finih detajlih zrcali odnos mladega para na počitnicah z vsemi malimi nevšečnostmi, v katerih se prepoznamo gledalci in se pravzaprav smejimo sami sebi. Lahkotnost in briljanca filma v vseh segmentih njegove izvedbe –scenarija, kamere, režije, igre. Odlična izvedba celotne ekipe filma odpira naš »periferni vid«.

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.
