This article looks at how the family's libidinal economy gets deployed in cinematically rendered practices of space. It identifies the balcony as a space of release from fraught interactions within the family and the cage as an intrusion within the strictly surveyed space of the household, as a small heterotopia within the affectually dystopic family space.
