Palm Trees in the Snow :- Watch Palm Trees in the Snow on YoutubeonFire, Colony yarns have to take care not to fall into black/white, good/bad divisions if they aren’t to become mere parody, and Sergio G. Sanchez’s script (he is also responsible for Juan Antonio Bayona’s superior The Orphanage and The Impossible) at least makes a game attempt to address some of colonialism’s complexities as Spanish Guinea shifts towards independence and the black/white power relations change, as indeed do the relationships between men and women: Trees dutifully takes politically correct aim at both racism and sexism. There indeed are some genuinely powerful scenes to be found in Trees: one in which Julia dances with other women, forgetting the racial differences in a way that the men seem unable to, a powerful scene at the dying Anton’s bedside, or an eleganty-crafted sequence involving a snake casually left in Killian’s room as a rite of passage. The script dutifully ticks the plot point boxes, including the mysterious mark on the older Killian’s body which will have to be explained. It effortfully labors at profundity once or twice, as in its repeated references to turtles which return each year across thousands of miles of ocean. because home is where the heart is Lucas Vidal’s score is as lush (and sometimes as soppy) as the rain-drenched vegetation of the island, and though rarely as attractive, it does more to drive the emotions than most of the performances. Mario Casas has carved out a niche for himself as a hulk with a heart, but too often he plays.
