In a dystopian near future, single people, according to the laws of The City, are taken to The Hotel, where they are obliged to find a romantic partner in forty-five days or are transformed into beasts and sent off into The Woods.
Georges and Anne are an octogenarian couple. They are cultivated, retired music teachers. Their daughter, also a musician, lives in Britain with her family. One day, Anne has a stroke, and the couple's bond of love is severely tested.
Three teenagers are confined to an isolated country estate that could very well be on another planet. The trio spend their days listening to endless homemade tapes that teach them a whole new vocabulary. Any word that comes from beyond their family abode is instantly assigned a new meaning. Hence 'the sea' refers to a large armchair and 'zombies' are little yellow flowers. Having invented a brother whom they claim to have ostracized for his disobedience, the über-controlling parents terrorize their offspring into submission. The father is the only family member who can leave the manicured lawns of their self-inflicted exile, earning their keep by managing a nearby factory, while the only outsider allowed on the premises is his colleague Christina, who is paid to relieve the son of his male urges. Tired of these dutiful acts of carnality, Christina disturbs the domestic balance. Written by

I cannot believe that the obvious political subtext was totally denied in some comments. You only have to take a look at the world we live in to see the clear structure of this alleged "nonsense" film. Total CCTV surveillance? Internet blacklists? Ban of violence in computer games and films? All to protect us? I really don't doubt that the majority of politicians responsible for those developments are not evildoers. Like the parents in this film - the politicians only want the best for all of us. But the little brother outside the garden isn't dead, he has grown up. So the film shows us the end point of this development. Where Zombies are little yellow flowers, there is slavery freedom.
