Directed by Lech Majewski
In this "absolutely singular autobiographical film opera" (Time Out London), multi-talented composer, writer, director and artist Lech Majewski presents a stunning, intimate, and ultimately magical work of unbridled creativity. 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.
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.
Accompanied by the Polish National Symphony Orchestra and the Silesian Opera Chorus, Majewski gilds the THE ROE'S ROOM with "remarkable images" (Time Out) of "strange, entrancing beauty" (Variety) and creates a soaring theatrical Eden in which life goes on, love blooms and dies, and nature has the final say.
