The Tree of Wooden Clogs (ItalianL'Albero degli zoccoli; titledThe Tree with the Wooden Clogs in the UK) is a 1978 Italian film written and directed by Ermanno Olmi. The film concernsLombard peasant life in a cascina (farmhouse) of the late 19th century. It has some similarities with the earlier Italian neorealist movement, in that it focuses on the lives of the poor, and the parts were played by real farmers and locals, rather than professional actors. It won fourteen awards including the Palme d'or at Cannes and the César Award for Best Foreign Film. The original version of the movie is spoken in Bergamasque, an Eastern Lombard dialect.
