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.

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.
Frustrée par la dernière partie qui n'a ni queue ni tête, alors que tout cela s'annonçait très bien. Le côté expérimental indéniable (dans la vraie vie, les services sociaux seraient déjà intervenus) supprime toute forme de suspension consentie d'incrédulité, et c'est dommage. Un film complexe toutefois, abordant des thèmes et une forme assez exploitables.
Toll herausgearbeitete Charaktere. Die gegenseitige Vertrautheit und Zuwendung, und die Freude aneinander, gibt den Protagonisten die Kraft, in einer immer schwieriger werdende Situation. Überzeugend gespielt. Obwohl fast nichts passiert, man ist nie gelangweilt.
downright painful in its claustrophobia and constant impending danger but leavened by eccentricity and a joyous buoyancy that is never really quashed. perhaps prone to overanalysis... taken as a dark comedy, this shines a bit more brightly. in any case: beautifully filmed and wonderfully acted.
