"Home is where the heart is and sometimes the pathologies too. In HOME, an art-house domestic comedy with a tragic undercurrent about a family and its idiosyncratic cohabitation, home is fun house and fortress both, a bright spot, a dark corner, a place of play, a place apart. Mostly, though, it’s a state of mind." – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times


“Something will have to give, and it does, as the movie grows more and more dark. It's the skill of Ursula Meier, the director and co-writer, to bring us to those fraught passages by rational stages. What happens would not make sense in many households, but in this one, it represents a certain continuity, and confirms deep currents we sensed almost from the first.”
– Roger Ebert

“Terrific performances and superb cinematography lift cowriter-director Ursula Meier's feature debut above its thuddingly metaphorical premise.”
– Keith Uhlich, Time Out
