    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.
  2. Reviewed by: David Parkinson
    A deeply disconcerting provocation about the future of civilisation: a powerfully performed vision of an insignificant humanity.

    In this season of Hollywood blockbusters, small movies can get lost in the hype. Don't let that happen to Home.
  4. Reviewed by: Rob Nelson
    Typically sharp work by d.p. Agnes Godard and lead thesp Isabelle Huppert.
  5. Reviewed by: Gary Goldstein
    Enjoyable, involving dramedy.
  6. Home is, as with so many family stories, also something of a disaster movie: the walls shudder and crack, and eventually so do the people inside them.
  7. Walks a fine line between the quotidian and the absurd, but falls short of a satisfying payoff.
