This art film has no conventional dialog between the main characters. This tells a strangely compelling story of two women in a suburban home who are listening to radio news broadcasts about a missing child in their area.

Clunky, occasionally spooky French haunted house thriller.
This is a clunky and rather slow, but mildly interesting French take on the family moves into a haunted house genre. The special effects which largely consist of furniture sliding around are strickly sub-Exorcist, but the film has a few quirky touches which keep the proceedings from being too predictable. Worth a look, if only because French horror films are such a rarity, but this doesn't hold a candle to the similarly themed The Haunting.
