Pascale lives with her adult twin sons in a renovated Belgian farmhouse. Each is still reeling from the divorce that divided the family some years earlier. Both boys pursue their respective interests, but neither seems compelled to embrace adulthood or the responsibilities that come with it. Pascale falls in love again and dreams of a new life for herself and her lover. Her dream is to own a countryside B&B. But what would seemingly be a happy time in her life takes a turn for the worse as she finds herself unabel to rise from the shadow of her ex-husband and selfish children. In a bid for survival, Pascale leaves the house in the hands of her sons, never suspencting that in her absence, long-buried resentment and rivalry will boil over, igniting a war between the brothers.

In this dysfunctional family drama, Isabelle Huppert shows why she is probably the best actress over the last 20 years. She easily slips into the character of the messed-up mother without missing a beat. Unfortunately, the two twins (the Renier brothers) aren't nearly as good and Huppert's presence make them seem even worse.
Docked a notch for the (relatively) unsatisfying ending.

Pretty good, solid film.

True to life situations complete with common disfunctional relationships. But two 20 year old brothers sharing a tub to wash each other's hair was preposterous! Only in Europe I guess?

spoiled, loutish non-identical twin brothers, un-amicably divorced parents, broken family boundaries. wonderfully restrained acting by Huppert. family nor house is 'private property'.
