This is one of the most underrated anime movies in all history.
One of unique kind. If you are expecting some nice story with happy ending just stop reading this.
It's one genre that stands out of all of the rest, it's Dystopian Sci-Fi anime. If you've watched Now and Then, Here and There or Gin'iro no Kami no Agito or Green Legend Ran or even Ergo Proxy and liked them, then you will definitely like this one, it's just plain brilliant, unique and unforgattable. I won't start explaining the story that mostly is so unique that you can't fully understand it without throughout thinking about it. ...

The artwork for a Tree of Palme is absolutely stunning. The characters are adorable (except for Palme, he sucks, but I can't tell you why without a major spoiler). The virtues of this show were not enough to offset it's one flaw though. They sacrificed the story upon the altar of symbolism.

I didn’t know about Tree of Palme until it was licensed by ADV. Many of the advertisements gave me the impression that Tree of Palme would be a serious and mature title, despite the childish looking character designs. After watching I was right for the most part, its just I could barely keep awake when watching.

The first thing I noticed and probably most people, was the animation. It is undeniable beautiful and very smooth. Backgrounds in particular were well done and quite nice to look at. I guess since this is a movie the animation is expected to be amazing. ...
