Trivia

Ursula Meier has been searching for location for nearly one year, even in Canada. Eventually she found a lost part of a highway in Bulgaria. The house in which the movie plays, was built alongside the highway especially for filming. There were up to 300 drivers "playing" the fast moving cars - all were inhabitants of a nearby village. On days without shooting the drivers came visiting the location with their whole families. See more »

Goofs

An accident halts the traffic on both sides of the highway. Only one side should be affected: the one leading to where the accident took place. See more »

highway to hell
3 November 2009 | by gardiecaSee all my reviews

Very interesting and surprising film starring one of my favorite actress, Isabelle Huppert. The film describes the changes that take place into an ordinary family who lives next to a highway.One day the highway is opened, and still life turns into a nightmare.Each member of the family deals with the problem in a different way. All of them try to keep on doing the same things in their own way, but things go wronger day by day.The cast play such excellent roles that you can feel the anxiety as they do.I was asking myself during the film Why don't they leave ? But there are no answers, only questions. Enjoy the film and try to find why.
