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 finds themselves pushed to dangerous extremes.

3.5 stars. Love,love, LOVE Huppert, and Olivier Gourmet, too, so this is completely watchable, but also completely silly. This film wants to have the crazy excitement of Godard's WEEKEND, but instead of being profound, it turns out profoundly silly. Amusing, but I really couldn't take it seriously, and I felt like I was supposed to. Whatever, I watch all of Isabelle Huppert's films!
Captivating film. Encapsulates a situation we've all felt before. Stuck in a place we can't leave and angry for it, with no one to blame. Each family member responds to the situation in a unique, but futile way. The editing is excellent and makes a rich world out of a simple roadside house.
Misophonia, agoraphobia, hypochondria, OCD; it seemed so many complex disorders got brought out as a result of this highway intruding on their peaceful, isolated lives together. Their family is sweet in their togetherness. This was incredibly interesting and amazingly acted.
