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.

10 November 2006 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

"Majewski's normal multi-tasking takes on even greater dimensions in his absolutely singular 'autobiographical film opera'. Writing (libretto and music), directing and designing this often limpidly beautiful 'cycle of life' parable, he conjures some remarkable images out of an extremely contained spatial and thematic environment…One of a kind." Gareth Evans, Time Out London

"A fantastical, haunting tale set in a house where nature fuses with - and eventually consumes - the lives of a family." Laurence Kardish, Senior Curator, New York Museum of Modern Art

"A modern visual arts masterpiece!" Ruben Guzman, Curator, Buenos Aires Museum of Fine Arts

"Fascinating film. Extraordinary imagination." Pierre-Henri Deleau, Biarritz International Festival of Audiovisual Media

"A visionary and musical poem. A profound, subtle and very original movie." Claude Chamberlan, Montreal International Film Festival

"There is a strange, entrancing beauty to the images and music in 'The Roe's Room'. Majewski creates striking visual tableaux that possess a memorable, haunting quality." Brendan Kelly, Variety

"Henri Langlois Association presents two equally unique film masterpieces at Cinema Accatone in Paris: the somber 'Film' by Samuel Beckett, and hypnotic 'Roe's Room' by Lech Majewski." Allan Riou, Le nouvelle Observateur

"Disturbing and visionary." Carlo Montanaro, La Nuova di Venezia
