The Guernica Tree is Arrabal’s most unflinching and personal film – a testimony to the horrors of war, the absurd chaos of life turned upside down and the ache of love. Villa Romero is home to Vandale (Mariangela Melato) a witch, Count Cerralbo (Bento Urago), a powerless land baron, and his four sons. Three of Cerralbo’s sons are ruthless sadists who pillage the country side, but the fourth, Goya (Ron Faber), is an artist challenging authority and the church. When Vandale and Goya fall in love they become embroiled in the chaos of war and move ever closer to the doom that awaits in Guernica.
