Review
Olmi's film is a fascinating study of life within the peasant community in rural Italy at the turn of the century, a hand to mouth existence that, while beautifully observed and visualised, is at no point glorified or demonised. 'The Tree of the Wooden Clogs', with its naturalistic camera work and non-professional cast, is an unassuming mesmerising work with a strong Marxist message.
