Directed by Ursula Meier and starring Isabelle Huppert and Olivier Gourmet, the film has been scheduled into the prestigious Sunday night slot which was reserved for Juan Antonio Bayona's The Orphanage last year.
Home tells the story of a family whose peaceful existence is threatened by a new highway opened just meters from their house. The family refuses to move but must find innovative ways to adapt to the new environment. Suspicions about the highway's unknown long-term dangers cause family tension, and although remaining in the disrupted household might not be so easy, it is still their home.
Diaphana will release the Archipel 35 production in France. Memento has international sales.
Memento also informed ScreenDaily.com that it is handling French director Anna Novion's Critics Week title Grown Ups and Laurent Cantet's title The Class (Entre Les Murs).
The Class is set in a high school in a tough neighbourhood, which serves as a microcosm for contemporary France. The film is based on the book by teacher Francois Begaudeau, who stars as himself in the film.
