Under The Apple Tree

This award winning horror/ fantasy animated film written and directed by Erik Van Schaaik was the last film I saw at Anim’est festival in Bucharest. It has an otherworldly quality from the start and follows the story of two estranged brothers; a farmer and a priest who battle over the destiny of their inherited orchard. Without spoiling it for you, the plot take a weird twist when the worms who live in the apples discover they can manoeuvre a corpse, with comic and horrid consequences. Masterful 3D design produces a look, reminiscent of Aardman Animation. Atmospheric lighting & a heavily produced soundtrack plus excellent pacing make this an entertaining and memorable cinema experience.

A stop-motion horror comedy.
