“A bewitching dream of a film…evoke[s] the tantalizing possibility of Jacques Tati making a movie based on the fiction of JG Ballard.” – The London Telegraph
Official Selection: Cannes Film Festival (International Critics’ Week), New Directors/New Films
In Ursula Meier’s stunning theatrical debut, a family’s peaceful existence is threatened when a busy highway is opened right next to their isolated property. As the sounds and fumes of the modern world begin to fill their home, each member of the family (including Isabelle Huppert and Oliver Gourmet, both in tour-de-force performances) finds themselves pushed to dangerous extremes.
