93 mins Switzerland Director. Ursula Meier

The first feature from Ursula Meier (who later made Sister), this portrait of a family living in a house next to an unused motorway makes for an intriguing allegory - partly comic, partly disturbing - about the trials and tribulations of contemporary life. Isabelle Huppert and Olivier Gourmet excel as the laissez-faire parents who need to respond when it's announced the road will open to traffic
