The Golden Bear winner at this year’s Berlinale is a moving multigenerational story of a family of peach farmers facing upheaval and change as the harvest season comes to an end.Tensions come to the fore when the Solé family find out that the landowners of the orchards they farm plan to replace peach trees with solar panels. With this premise, Carla Simón crafts a delicate Chekhovian elegy to a disappearing way of life. Intersecting the personal and the political to potent effect, ‘Alcarràs’ brilliantly navigates the different perspectives of the Solé clan – from the playful small children and wilful adolescents to the bickering adults and pained grandfather Rogelio, who struggles to understand what is happening. The cast, all non-professionals, are outstanding, grounding this distinctive and richly textured feature. (Maria Delgado, London Film Festival).
