'The Juniper Tree' trailer

4K restoration of the film by Nietzchka Keene. Lead by Björk, it premiered in 1990.

During the last years of the Middle Ages a young woman is accused of witchcraft and burned. The woman's daughters, Margit (Björk Guðmundsdóttir) and Katla (Bryndis Petra Bragadóttir) make her escape for the mountains, where they find shelter in the house of a widowed farmer called Jóhann (Valdimar Örn Flygenring) and his son Jónas (Geirlaug Sunna Þormar). Katla will try to seduce Jóhann, but his son will be suspicious of her being a witch and he will hate her, but he befriends with Margit. Meanwhile, Margit will start to have visions of her mother and to find shelter in a fantasy world.

Even though the story is freely based on the tale 'The Juniper Tree', from the Grimm brothers, the director focuses on a text from T. S. Eliot to speak about a comeback to God, about a longing for an elevation contrary to the roughness of death and that misses the hope of rebirth.
