There’s No Place Like Home: Class, Conflict and Violence in Ils (2006) Part 2: The House As A Safe Place

There’s No Place Like Home: Class, Conflict and Violence in Ils (2006)

For Clem and Lucas, their house represents not only their success and status in society but it functions as a place where they can relax and feel assured that they are protected. The home they have chosen reveals a lot about how they perceive themselves and perhaps most importantly, how they’d like to be perceived by others. Originating from France, a country widely known for upholding its values and traditions, it’s telling that their house is the embodiment of these things. Grand and spacious, it reflects the opulence of eighteenth-century France with its vast corridors and period detail.

“This can’t be happening…”

There’s No Place Like Home: Class, Conflict and Violence in Ils (2006) Part 1: The Outsider Moving In

There’s No Place Like Home: Class, Conflict and Violence in Ils (2006)

Stradling the sub genres of the new French extremity, home invasion and the controversial, oftentimes topical subject of the young and alienated working classes, Ils offers up a set of complex questions that are juxtaposed with its very simple and fast paced framework. We can all recall a time when we have been alone in our homes at night and felt under threat for some reason, even if that threat transpires to be nothing more than a creaking door or a loose floor board…

“You’ll never feel safe in your home again.”

An Interview with Director Uwe Boll, Postal, BloodRayne

An Interview with Director Uwe Boll, House of the Dead, Rampage, Postal

Director Uwe Boll shouldn’t need much of an introduction to film fans. Quite the controversial figure, it seems if he’s not making films that divide opinion, he’s pissing off the people that are.

“Independent movies are dead. What we have left are TV shows, $200mil studio movies and some Oscar contenders. The rest will be $100k movies shot by amateurs and wannabe filmmakers.”
