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.

Appreciate Majewskis work as a trans-genre libretto not as a movie
25 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This review is primarily a rebuttal to the comment that this film looks to much like 'TV' and lacks plot. First of all, if you know anything about Majewski you know he has a love for Dutch Renaissance paintings and he has developed unique cinematography reminiscent of their style. Additionally, anyone making references to plot and realism, is completely missing the boat. This film is not a 'movie' in the traditional meaning, therefore you cannot make comparisons to any movie genre characteristics. The lack of dialogue except for singing should not be surprising from a film subtitled "An Autobiographical Opera" and in which he names himself as the "librettist" instead of director in the opening credits.

If you liked this "painterly" film as another review referred to this film, you will love Majewski's most well known film THE MILL AND THE CROSS Mill. He actually recreates the Dutch Renaissance painting THE PROCESSION TO CALVARY with incredible precision as a live action film using real actors and special effects.

For a more accessible feature film that follows most of the rules of the traditional drama movie genre, THE GARDEN OF EARTHLY DELIGHTS tells a story of two lovers existential journey of Venice and exploration of the eponymous triptych by Bosch another Dutch painter.
