Combustible Celluloid

It's a unique work of disturbing character poetry, though it may be a little too disturbing.

Groucho Reviews

Darkly funny, haunting, and perhaps hopeful...there's a keen sense of absurdism (and in Agnès Godard's brilliant photography a sort of surrealist realism, if there is such a thing) in the circumstances. [Blu-ray]

Home is the engaging, darkly funny, surreal story of what happens when people who have thrived by keeping civilization at a safe distance suddenly find themselves pushed right back into its headlights.

What happens would not make sense in many households, but in this one, it represents a certain continuity, and confirms deep currents we sensed almost from the first.

Reeling Reviews

This suburban horror tale of a family's disintegration once modern life begins encroaching is reminiscent of such films as "The Cement Garden"...

Reeling Reviews

Moving from the richly filled, quiet life of Marthe and her clan to the hell that the road brings, the story...has a unique arc and is a true family tragedy.

Gradually the movie turns into an ironic assault on the inconvenient nature of civilization's conveniences.

Though the cautionary symbolism is clear here, the committee-written film (there were five scribes including Meier), smartly keeps its message quotient in check.

A surrealistic look at a family thrown onto the chopping block of modern technology.

Erica Abeel
Film Journal International

This original but overlong fable about a family menaced by industrial progress captures fears about a planet out of control.

Nora Lee Mandel

Eases down the road from an intimate family portrait to a disturbing environmental-disaster fable with a harrowing credibility that has more depth than most apocalypses.

Working with all-star DP Agnès Godard, Meier effectively communicates the sense of upended privacy.

The performers manage to overcome Meier's schematic framework-too "modern-day fairy tale" for its own good-though the director clearly knows which collaborators and elements to enlist for game-raising purposes.

Shadows on the Wall

Filmmaker Meier takes a clever look at family life by placing the characters in a surreal location and then twisting things outrageously

Director Ursula Meier generally distinguishes her feature debut by not pushing elements to melodramatic or farcical extremes.

Observer [UK]

It's a nightmare metaphor for the horrors of the modern world, but will seem like everyday reality to anyone living around Heathrow or any motorway.

David Edwards
Daily Mirror [UK]

A kind of anti-road movie, the first half is a genial rural snapshot but, when that bypass opens, the wheels come off and things take a turn for the surreal and boring.

David Parkinson
Empire Magazine

A deeply disconcerting provocation about the future of civilisation: a powerfully performed vision of an insignificant humanity.

A first film of laudable ambition and Meier's directorial confidence suggests promise for the future.

Times [UK]

It would have been more effective if Meier had exercised less restraint and allowed her characters to spin out of control.
