Narrated by Marianne Faithfull, Trees (2002, 52 min.) is an animist paean to the title plants, its reverent compositions and score honoring the antiquity and idiosyncrasy of various baobobs, sequoias, acacias, and other specimens. French filmmakers Sophie Bruneau and Marc-Antoine Roudil nicely integrate the mystic and the naturalistic. In Allotment (2003, 24 min., in Dutch with subtitles) filmmaker Ben van Lieshout observes forlorn elderly gardeners in the tiny plots nestled alongside highways and railroads; his moody exercise in urban geography is accompanied by on-camera and voice-over readings of verse by poets Rutger Kopland, Gerrit Kouwenaar, and Adriaan Jaeggi.
