L'arbre et la forêt (Family Tree)

Feature Film France 2010

It's the day of the burial of his elder son, but Frederick, an aged French landowner, prefers to go wandering through the woods rather than attend the funeral. When he finally goes back, he finds his whole family waiting for him; his younger son accuses him for his absence and Frederick refuses to apologize or explain. His daily life is very detached from that of his family: only his wife knows the secret he is hiding, a burden he has been carrying since WWII, when he came home from the concentration camp. He was imprisoned  not for political reasons, as he said, but for being homosexual. When he felt he had to explain it all to his wife and older son, the latter rejected and blackmailed him. A family drama, with deep contents, strong narration and an absolutely perfect cast. From the same directors of Drôle de Felix and Côte d'Azur (Crustacés et Coquillages).
