Moira+I went to see this film by director Ursula Meier at the Watershed last night. The film deals with, amongst other things, family solidarity – it’s disturbing, but impressive; rather dark but amusing. It observes a family’s peaceful existence in France being threatened as a busy highway (after remaining uncompleted for ten years) is opened only feet away from their isolated rural house. They refuse to relocate and so begins the nightmare for this closely-bonded family – used to privacy and the silence of the natural world.
