Home Sweet Home

  • 23.05.2008

Out of the four movies Wallimage co-produced, Home is most certainly the one with the least exposure in the Belgian media during the Cannes Festival. Yet our Swiss friends are very proud of their compatriot Ursula Meider’s work. She directed this atypical and strong movie, co-produced in Belgium by Need Productions, starring the irresistible Olivier Gourmet next to a genial Isabelle Huppert.

It is in Le Temps that Thierry Jobin, correspondent at Cannes, holds a passionate plead regretting that the movie wasn’t withheld for the official selection. Its title, Ursula, la Meier d’entre nous.
“Cannes has been showing movies since Wednesday and every screening leads to a bit more rage: why did Home, presented Sunday evening during a special showing of the Semaine de la Critique, not get the honours of a more prestigious selection, Un certain regard or even the competition? It would certainly not have looked bad. It would even have sparkled in all its beauty, given the very average quality of the official selection so far.”
