The Wild Pear Tree
BY Tele335 grader
This is a beautifully photographed movie, the acting is wonderful, the ideas are deep ... but the glacial pace and oblique storytelling will wear down even the most patient viewer. There’s a recovery of sorts in the closing minutes, but even as the ending lands you might well be thinking it could have landed ninety minutes sooner.
