Less focused than most of (writer-director Francois) Ozon's previous films. It is difficult to decide with which character we as viewers/pseudo-participants are supposed to empathize. More off-putting than fully satisfying in the end.
The dexterity of the actors and their director is not quite enough, and as "In the House" accelerates, it also starts to sputter, piling on incidents and revelations that cause its web of implications to unravel.
Delicious, intriguing and addictive exposé of the creative-writing process and middle-class dysfunction. Wry humor and mystery also bring alive what might be acclaimed filmmaker François Ozon's most accomplished and unpredictable work to date.
