Storyline

Within their apartment, a father, mother and son bear the dulling yoke of an ordinary urban life. His mind and heart borne aloft by the cycle of the seasons and the images and music within him, the son transforms his cloistered existence into a richly poetic emotional utopia. As autumn arrives, cracking flakes of plaster become falling leaves. With spring, a cold hard floor comes alive with meadow grass and love beckons in the form of a beautiful young girl's outstretched hand. A ravishing ode to the imagination, THE ROE'S ROOM is a place where the energy of youth and the eternal power of the natural world triumph over the banalities and deprivations of the commonplace.

Fascinating film. Extraordinary imagination.
1 November 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In my opinion this film is a fantastical, haunting tale set in a house where nature fuses with the lives of a family. The Roes' Room marries opera with painting-like images in an intricate and enthralling homage to the wonder of youth. Majewski uses both the fine arts and the vitality of the natural world to induce a sense of the richness of his life as a child and the miracle of the life of the creative imagination. Images tell us about the invisible but vibrant life force that filled the filmmaker's childhood. I'm sure that the combination of the visuals and the music, will be appreciated by almost anyone who appreciates art. Shortly - it's a modern visual arts masterpiece!!!!
