THE PEOPLE IN THE HOUSE explores the dynamics of a family in crisis and questions the role of religious devotion in that context. The different elements in the film are used in an expressive and poetic way and work together to create an artificial yet convincing claustrophobic universe, a fragile space between memory, fantasy and dream, a place of tension between harmony and chaos.
