This off-kilter family drama introduces us to an odd French family who have set up their homestead on the median of an abandoned highway. One day, a road crew shows up to open the road, robbing the family of their front yard. Led by a brittle homemaker (the immortal Isabelle Huppert), the family tries several methods of coping with the increasing traffic rocketing past their windows: ignorance, escape and finally madness. Is this a metaphor, an experimental cult drama, a mildly surreal comedy? Hard to say, but debut director Ursula Meier makes it indelible nonetheless. 97 minutes
