BERLIN -- Ursula Meier's debut feature, "Home," starring Isabelle Huppert and Oliver Gourmet, has been picked by Switzerland to be the country's entry for the 2010 Oscar as best foreign-language film.

"Home" tells the story of a French family's attempt to hold on to their quiet rural way of life after the government builds a highway straight through their backyard. The film premiered in Cannes last year and in March picked up three Swiss Film Prizes, including best film.

"Home" is being sold worldwide by Memento Films International.
