Though it takes a while to get going - needing to establish that this family is happy and loves each other before the story complicates - this is a film that dramatizes its complaint about the pace of modern life very well. It sways back and forth between the realist and the absurd, and the way its walls close in is chilling. I really liked this one - Switzerland's submission for Best Foreign Language film in its year of release.

Ursula Meier's study of an eccentric family's slide from bohemian happiness to a shared state of poor health and insanity. It is successful as both a psychological study and environmental commentary. And, it is also almost hypnotically entertaining.

A quiet and effective film.

Not bad. My critisism would be that it's a 20 minute short film drawn out to be an 80 minute feature film. Way too slow and a lot of unnecessary scenes.
