2 November 2011 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

A dystopian tale of the claustrophobia of the modern world. Ursual Meier's breezy suburban (sic) horror works because of the joy that the actors invest in the characters in the first act. As a bohemian nuclear family, lines of propriety are blurred in pursuit of honesty and fun, much like the edges of the disused motorway and their garden.

No praise is high enough for the ten-year-old Kacey Mottet Klein who plays Julien. No doubt he has been coached carefully by his director but is almost always on screen, almost always doing something fresh and unexpected. Of course, Huppert's name is the big draw, but it's an ensemble film with different characters and charismas coming in and out of focus. One character that's always out of focus is that of the road. As well as the E.T.-mute workmen relaying it and the cars and their drivers coasting by on it, there is the travel DJ only ever heard on the radio, giving it this anamorphic quality.

This is a JG Ballard-like dystopian fantasy, i.e. not too fantastical to disbelieve, and could be watched in a particularly hardcore double bill with Michael Haneke's Time Of The Wolf, also starring Huppert who has to mother a small blonde boy through lawless times. 7/10
