The Roe's Room
Polish director Lech Majewski brings his self-described "autobiographical opera" to the screen. Involved in every aspect of the original stage version's genesis (including co-composing the music), Majewski's story unfolds in a single apartment over the course of four seasons -- beginning with Spring. As the film begins, a small family -- mother, father and son -- sit down for the evening meal and then prepare to sleep. Just before bedtime, the boy hangs a painting of a cross-bound Christ on his wall. Soon afterward, blood slowly drips down the wall. Summer brings an abundance of blooming flowers inside the flat, and from here things take on a magical, slightly surreal air in which the man-made environment becomes increasingly naturalistic. Eventually, a herd of deer move in. Pokoj Saren was screened at the 1998 Montreal Festival of New Cinema & New Media. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
