Part 11 of the 30 Countries project.
For the purposes of this project this movie is classed as at least partially being of Swiss origin as per its listing on imdb.
Idyllic family unit, living in the countryside, next to an abandoned freeway. The freeway is reopened and their lives change forever.
I expected a movie with this concept to be a little more surreal, instead this is a political message film posing as magic realism disguised as kitchen sink drama.
I cannot even pretend to know what this movie is a metaphor for but I would hazard a guess at the perils of modern life, the planetwide disaster that is technological pollution, mental illness, the importance of family.
