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]

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.
Sometimes eerie, at other times playful and witty, it explores themes of modernity and primitivism without ever being heavy-handed. And as a portrait of a family under siege, it's as unsettling as it is sensual.
