Cannes sidebar adds Ursula Meier's 'Home'

Critics Week special screening on May 18

PARIS -- The 47th Festival de Cannes Critics Week sidebar has added Ursula Meier's Franco-Swiss-Belgian co-production "Home" as a special screening on May 18, organizers said Wednesday.

The drama, starring Isabelle Huppert and Olivier Gourmet, follows a family whose peaceful existence in an isolated country home is threatened with the reconstruction of a busy highway nearby.

"Home" was produced by Denis Freyd's Archipel 35. Memento Films International is handling worldwide sales for the film released in France by Diaphana Distribution.
