Malick But it is also a thinker, a director can transpose philosophy on the screen. Man, life, cosmo, nature, It Gave They are united, so unforced, in a harmonious vision of 'universe.
Malick shows all facets of life in the tree of life: by the development of matter informe alla birth of life Biological, from the macrocosm of 'universe the microcosm of life family. The two principles of nature and grace introduced by the director symbolize the relationship between evolution of matter and life Biological (Nature) and the ratio between uomo is It Gave (Grace).
