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.

how pretentious!
28 February 2006 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

I don't like this film because of three reasons.First of them is the content.There is no plot in this film, we only see pictures of ordinary life, we see characters eating dinner, watching TV and so on, but it's not realistic movie.All these casual activities are shown in highly poetic way,nevertheless poetry doesn't make it more interesting,on the contrary, this kind of poetry is clumsy and unconvincing.Second reason is visual aspect;Pokoj Saren is made by means of digital camera that's why it doesn't look like real movie, it seems to be more like TV program.The third reason is music.It's essential part of the film,there are no dialogs in it, only music and singing(subtitle of the movie is "An Autobiographical Opera").Unfortunately,the music is terribly pretentious- it pretends to be sophisticated, lofty, beautiful, but is simply artificial. All in all, this film isn't worth seeing, after 10 minutes I wanted to turn out the TV set.
