The Cherry Tree
Directed by Matthieu Boivineau
France | 27 min | 2017
A large cherry tree in a garden, a family, moments of life, time passing by. Through the 4 seasons, this majestic cherry tree changes, this family too.
Like a poem about passing time and an ode to nature, a reflection on our changing identities …
Director, Producer, Writer
Born in Poitiers in 1985, Matthieu Boivineau grew up in Châteaubriant (FRANCE), an small city between Rennes, Nantes and Angers. Directing his first short films in school, from animating modeling, to clips and shorts documentary, he refines his vision and learns to master the tools of creation.
Along with a BTS Audiovisual (LISA, Angoulême, major of promotion) and some training courses on shooting in Poitou-Charente, he began writing his first feature film “Denis”. With a little unconsciousness but a lot of determination, he decides to produce it himself, and to realize it of course. An associative structure, a few helpers, personal funds and a lot of resourcefulness allow him to shoot for 6 weeks with a team of students and professionals throughout France. It celebrates its 20 years during the shooting. After a year of editing, Les Films à Fleur de Peau is seduced by the film. On October 7, 2009, Denis released in dozens of cinemas in Paris and in the provinces.
