The House

A Casa

Directed by Sharunas Bartas
Lithuania, Portugal, 1997
Drama, Avant-Garde


A contemplative ode to the home. The home as a centre of everyday routine and relationships. The home with all it’s comings and goings. The home as a centre of unions and separations. The home as a centre of life that shelters its inhabitants from a wedding, a funeral, fireworks.

The House Directed by Sharunas Bartas

Critics reviews

[Bartas’] disaffection possibly reveals a lack of hope after the collapse of the Soviet Union, but he offers no easy answers, presenting both threatening exteriors and claustrophobic interiors, neither of which offer any kind of comfort to his meandering characters. His 1997 film The House (A Casa) is perhaps the most striking example.
