Preview of Home and appearance of Isabelle Huppert & director Ursula Meier

Posted by Craig Grobler on Google+ On Friday, July 31, 2009

We wanted you to be the first to know that Isabelle Huppert will be joining director Ursula Meier for a preview screening of Home on Tuesday.

Ursula Meier's debut feature is a darkly funny story of an oddball family living happily in an isolated house at the edge of an unfinished motorway. Isabelle Huppert and Olivier Gourmet star as the parents going to great lengths to protect their family from the infernal noise and dangers that are presented when the road is finally, and abruptly, opened to traffic. Their grumpy eldest daughter continues to don her bikini and languish in a deckchair despite the cars whizzing close by; the middle daughter studies the effect of the noxious fumes; and the youngest child sees it all initially as an adventure. As time goes by, the tone of the film shifts, becoming less comic as Meier introduces elements of melodrama and horror. This adds to the mystery of the story, which gives only vague hints as to what drives the family so determinedly to stay put in the face of such adversity.
