'Superb … the single best film of the Berlin Festival’
The Telegraph

'A buzzing and vibrant ensemble drama’

For as long as they can remember, the Solé family have spent every summer picking the peaches from their orchard in Alcarràs, a small village in Spain. But this year’s crop will be their last. The owner of the land is deceased, and his grandson and heir wants them to abandon the farming business so he can uproot the trees and install solar panels.  

So as the children and the adults get together for the harvest, the family finds themselves at odds as to how they should go on, and risk losing more than their home... 

Spanish director Carla Simón's Berlin Film Festival top prize-winner is a personal and beautifully observed new ensemble drama Inspired by her own family story, Alcarràs tells of a final harvest, relationships, unity, and tradition versus change. Bittersweet and poignant, it balances a bristling political conscience against its tenderly observed domestic drama.
