How much can we wall ourselves in before we suffocate?
This beautiful cinematic metaphor for the imprisonment of home ownership is one fine, albeit weird, movie. Also seemingly castigating the isolation experienced in rural areas and/or suburbia, family entrapment, and even global warming, "Home" is droll, horrifying, and poignant all at once.
Director Ursula Meier's control of the material suggests auteurist vision and a critical worldview. Her film is colorfully photographed and features impeccable performances. Though it's a splendid vehicle for Isabelle Huppert, the film is so much more than that and the whole cast deserves high marks.
"Home " is a singular film that begs repeat viewings.
